Lingua Luna is a Minneapolis-based contemporary folk trio. With degrees and backgrounds in theatre and art, The Ladies have come to their musical collaboration after years of friendship and scores of other multi-media pursuits. Each bring a different flavor of talent to the band: Annie is the arranger, pursuing the art of the written note. Rhiannon composes chord progressions and lyrics solely by emotion and Jen adds the necessary nuance to each song, learning new styles and instruments as needed. Some of the music stems from good ole classical training. Some of it arrives in the form of straight-up improvisation, when lessons of old fail to provide inspiration... but most of it's just fairy dust.
