We are very pleased and thankful to announce that we received a Creative Support for Individuals Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. We've already started recording our new CD, which will be titled "Lift the World." The grant will enable us to make the CD, do three CD release concerts, and a virtual show. Stay tuned for updates on this project, which will be a collection of songs inspired by the pandemic! We don't have an official release date yet, but it will be this fall, with concerts on Nov 3 (New York Mills Cultural Center), Nov 12 (Ginkgo Coffeehouse in St Paul), and Nov 17 (Princess Theater in St James, MN). All the details will be on our calendar at curtisandloretta.com/calendar soon!
