Minnesota Musicians

The world knows of some pretty stellar musicians that were born and raised in Minnesota.....Prince and Bob Dylan being the most notable. What the rest of the world doesn't know is that there are so many world class singers and musicians that work on stages and in recording studios every day in this state. It's crazy, really. My list of top Mn. musicians would easily reach over 100......and these are people I would put up next to the best of the best anywhere!!. I am so blessed to have shared the stage with so many of them. The thing I love is that there is so much support and love for each other in the music community here.....and so many who are in their 40's, 50's and 60's who are at the top of their game.....still putting out great records, still putting on great shows.....because music is so clearly WHO THEY ARE....not just what they do. I am so very proud to live and work in music in this community....I am a very lucky girl!!
