Curtis & Loretta sing doctor grace danforth

We're so honored to perform at Texas A&M University in Commerce, for this amazing event celebrating Texas women suffragists on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at  7pm.

Please join us for “Golden Voices and the Silver Screen—A Night of Celebrating Texas Women.” We’ll sing our song “Doctor Grace Danforth,” who was one of the first female doctors in Texas, also a suffragist, who delivered Curtis’s grandmother in 1893 !

After our set, there will be a Screening of the PBS documentary, “Citizens At Last: Texas Women Fight for the Vote.”  Directed by Nancy Schiesari, Produced by Ellen Temple and Nancy Schiesari, and based on the research and writings of A&M-Commerce’s own Dr. Jessica Brannon-Wranosky.

Lift the World is Lifting the World!

What they're saying

---Our new album, Lift the World, is getting lots of attention! It's been played by folk radio dj’s across the U.S. and overseas. It’s on the Top Albums of October, November, and December 2022 on the Folk Music charts.

--- Track # 4,“Karmic Closet,” is on Don Jacobson's Favorites of 2022 on "Movin' On" on KBOO Radio in Portland, Oregon

--- “Song of the Soul” on Northern Spirit Radio said, “Minnesota's Twin Cities are teeming with musical talents, among them Curtis and Loretta. They've been making and performing fine mostly-folkish music for more than three decades. Loretta Simonet writes the lion's share of their songs, and her primary instrument is either the guitar or the folk harp, accompanied by Curtis' deep voice & rich instrumental skills. You'll find yourself uplifted by Loretta's upbeat lyrics & voice, as you might expect from a life-long singer & theater major."

---“I love your new album - such excellent new songs and music.” … Lilli Kuzma, Folk Festival Radio show, WDCB, Chicago

---“Thanks for sending your record. It’s chock full of goodies.” Rik James, Americana Backroads, KGLT Radio, Bozeman, Montana

Loretta Simonet is a fiscal year 2022 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
