“‘The Lowertown Line’ is one of the only programs in Minnesota that profiles and showcases our world-class music community on television,” said Series Producer, David Roth. “It’s a thrill to be able to bring a diverse line-up of local artists into living rooms across the state and also invite people to experience the music live at TPT.”

Started in 2012, “The Lowertown Line” is a TPT-produced music show and event series, which features local artists and musicians performing at the TPT studios or at venues around the community. In addition to footage from the live event, the shows tell the unique story of the artist or band in their own words. The Emmy Award-winning show is known for high production value, artistic lighting design, sweeping visuals, and compelling stories of the artists profiled.
