Folk Music

Violinist and Iron Range native, Jillian Rae talked with us during New Music this week in anticipation of our first CenterStage MN Concert of 2020.

We talk about her new album, I Can't Be the One You Want Me To Be, how she joined Two Many Banjos ('Hey, you have a violin!'), getting weird, cold medicine, and everything in between. Listen below.

Jillian Rae will be at the Mary Ives Studio Theater with her band on Thursday, January 16th. Doors open at 6:30pm, music starts at 7pm. Tickets here.

One of the founder of The Pines, David Huckfelt, is out with a solo album Stranger Angels. If you've listened to The Pines, or heard the new album, you know the beautiful works from this man. Joined by many of his great musical friends, the album covers the natural world, love, and the human connection.

Today on Live and Local, our Saturday morning program at 9am,  we featured a group that stopped by our studios yesterday - a group of 16 and 17 year old Swedish musicians Vikarbyns lillia spelmanslag

No matter how old they get, some daughters still have their dads wrapped around their little fingers.
