Minnesota Music Duo Curtis & Loretta
This event will be LIVE STREAMED from Minnesota!
Curtis & Loretta’s music comes straight from the heart. The folk singer/songwriter duo’s performances feature tight vocal harmonies, guitars, folk harp, mandocello, banjo and ukulele, all underscored by their deep connection with their listeners. Curtis’ down-home sense of humor and Loretta’s theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between. Based in Minneapolis, the husband-and-wife duo tours across the U.S., delivering their poignant original songs along with carefully chosen traditional songs.
City Pages named them “Best Acoustic Performers of the Twin Cities.” A grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board backed their latest CD, “When There’s Good to Be Done,” all songs Loretta wrote about “unsung heroes;” real-life people who overcame great challenges in their lives. The recording was on “Top Albums of 2016” on the folk radio charts (folk-dj).
“Curtis and Loretta are in many ways the quintessential folk duo: finely honed vocal harmonies of multidimensional intrigue, abundant talent on an array of stringed instruments, deep traditional roots, great originals, and equally strong strains of gravity and playful irreverence… It’s both musically riveting and spiritually invigorating.”
