Young Dubliners Play In November

The Young Dubliners hit NMU on Saturday, Nov. 16 in the Great Lakes Rooms of the University Center. Their music is described as "catchy, enlivening and bold," and the L.A. Times says, "The Young Dubliners' undiminished, full-flavor roots-rock puts the pastel version to shame."

Performing Arts series changes its name

Since 1989, the Performing Arts Series has brought world class entertainment and performance groups to NMU and the Marquette community. After much discussion and study, the series has been given a new name, Northern Nights, to attract the attention of a greater audience and reflect a shift away from strictly international performers. More Information
