Centerstage Minnesota

Don't fall to the temptation that spring is coming yet, we've got some winter ahead of us, and there's no better way to beat the cold than with cool music. Each week Centerstage Minnesota warms things up with music from all over Minnesota, including Atmosphere, Thea Ennen, and Reina del Cid.

Minnesota artist Courtney Yasmineh started writing songs in her teens. Now, a few decades later, she's traveling the world as a singer, songwriter, and now, novelist. It's a long way from finding her way through a difficult childhood to a successful career as an artist, but Courtney's making it happen.
