MNspin Musician of the Week: Curtis & Loretta
August 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Award winning folk singer-songwriter duo Curtis & Loretta’s extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and traditional pieces. The Minneapolis husband and wife duo’s current menagerie includes mandocello, folk harp, guitars, clawhammer banjo, and ukulele, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. The duo’s latest CD will be out in fall of 2022. The original songs were inspired by the pandemic, and the project is backed by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. The duo engages the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between.
“…they blend humor and realism in a poignant performance of super-duper stuff.” … Tom Irwin, Illinois Times
