Details: CURTIS & LORETTA and friends CD release concert at Cedar Cultural Center

For this award-winning duo’s ninth recording, Loretta has gathered together a stellar cast of characters. Supported by an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Loretta has written 12 songs about real-life ordinary people, who have overcome overwhelming challenges in their lives. There’s a rich tapestry of inspiration and riveting drama offered by the people (mostly Minnesotans) she sought out to interview; a WWII POW who survived the German Death March, a native American who grew up amidst great abuse and discrimination at the State Orphanage in Owatonna, a woman who donated a kidney to a toddler who was a total stranger, one of the Willmar 8 who battled gender discrimination back in the 1970s, a Somalian refugee who grew up in untold hardships and became a nurse at Mayo Clinic, the story of Loretta’s own parents who faced opposition to their marriage, and many more! They’re all crafted with Loretta’s poignant story-telling style, and presented with Curtis & Loretta’s signature tight harmonies and array of stringed instruments.

Joining Curtis & Loretta onstage will be ace bass player Sandy Njoes, plus some of the extraordinary people about whom Loretta wrote the songs!

“Husband-and-wife team Curtis Teague and Loretta Simonet are living treasures of the Twin Cities folk scene,
with a body of music rich in lovely harmonies and delicately wrought mandolin and harp." …( A.V. Club, The Onion, Minneapolis)

Loretta Simonet is a fiscal year 2015 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
