Tune in each week at 2:00 and 10:00pm for Centerstage Minnesota, featuring Minnesota artists in an eclectic mix of folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music.

Jonathan Rundman

Jonathan Rundman's recent record, Reservoir was 25 years in the making. To celebrate all those years of creating music, Jonathan put together a 22 song compilation of what might be called his favorites. We talk about that and more at the Minnesota State Fair.

It's just one of the 28 bands played recently on Centerstage Minnesota, but Ipso Facto deserves recognition for more than 30 years, through two kidney transplants, all while sharing the stage as brothers.

Every week I try to find the best representations of Minnesota music, like Walt Mink, who's album was listed as one of the top debuts in the country in the early 90s, and The Roe Family Singers, who sing old time music better than most. Click my link on PRX to hear the whole show. See if you can find the place where I sneak in New Orlean's son Trombone Shorty.
