New Review of "When There's Good to Be Done"
"When There's Good to Be Done" just got a really good review in No Depression (The Journal of Roots Music). The reviewer, Frank Gutch, wrote to me, "There is too little of this type of Modern Folk being done these days."

Curtis & Loretta to give first concert in newly re-opened
Bothy Folk Club, in Mankato MN
The legendary Bothy Folk Club had monthly concerts in Mankato, Minnesota, for many, many years. We were honored to play in this wonderful listening room several times, and we were sad when it closed down a few years ago. But the GOOD NEWS is that founder Michael Bonner has started it up again, and Curtis & Loretta will give the first concert, on Saturday, February 4. It'll be in the same place it used to be, the Eagles Club in downtown Mankato. Click here for all the details.
Newest CD, "When There's Good to Be Done" (Nov, 2015)
This CD features 12 original songs Loretta wrote about real people who overcame great challenges in their lives. It's the culmination of a year long project through an Artist Initiative grant that Loretta was awarded, from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
We got a great review in Minnesota Bluegrass Magazine
Loretta wrote each of the 12 songs on "When There's Good to Be Done" about real-life people who have gone through great challenges in their lives and come out stronger for the journey. She interviewed each person, crafted their story into a song, and then got back together with with them to polish the edges. These are ordinary people with extraordinary qualities. There's a woman who donated a kidney to a little girl she'd never met, a WWII POW who survived the German Death March, a woman who grew up in a small primitive village in Somalia and is now a nurse at Mayo Clinic, one of the worst injured of the 35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis, and many more!
