Ways to Connect

During this week's Centerstage Minnesota, I saw that Baby Shel overslept, so I played a song by Grand Rapids native Actual Wolf to help him wake up. Each week I feature Minnesota artists playing folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music. Whether it's to wake you up at home, or keep you cruising at work, join me every Friday at 2 and 10 for the only show featuring all Minnesota musicians in the area.

I had lots of fun putting together this week's Centerstage Minnesota show. You can hear a cut from the new album by Hippo Campus, and go back in time with Jonathan Rundman's cover of Come Sail Away. Centerstage Minnesota features Minnesota artists in an eclectic mix of folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music. Tune in every week from 2-4 to hear the awesome talents of local musicians.

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.

Centerstage Minnesota features Minnesota artists in an eclectic mix of folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music. One of the bands played this week is Tapes 'n Tapes, a Minneapolis based band. In early 2017, Tapes 'n Tapes re-released their first, self-titled EP. in a digital format. Inactive since 2011, this might mark the resurgance of this popular Minnesota band.
