Our latest CenterStage MN Concert was last night, (featuring a northern Minnesotan for the first time in the series!) with Sam Miltich & Charmin Michelle. I had the opportunity to sit next to a man, probably in his late 80s/early 90s. This dude was feeling the music, being transported in time; I couldn't help but share in his love.

The latest installment of Centerstage Minnesota features host Brett Carter talking with Rachael Kilgour, a Minneapolis-based musician originally from Duluth whose new album Rabbit in the Road releases on March 3rd. The album features a strong deliberation on the grief, rebuilding, and resiliency that comes from struggling through her divorce. Ultimately, the message is one of forgiveness and moving forward, but there's some real pain along the way.
