Go to http://www.Facebook.com/CurtisandLoretta, then scroll down to the Livestream Event, with the red "live" icon. See you there! 8pm Eastern, 7pm Central, 6pm Mountain, 5pm Pacific. We'll do original and traditional songs, with harmonies, folk harp, mandocello, guitars, banjo and uke. Tips appreciated, but not necessary, at http://www.PayPal.Me/CurtisandLoretta, http://www.Venmo.com/CurtisandLoretta, or PO Box 18652, Minneapolis, MN 55418. We'll be online 10 minutes early, so everyone can gather and make sure they find us, before we start the music on the hour!

The Critics Say...

"Loretta's almost operatic alto and Curtis' rich tenor form a lush, polished and varied vocal blend. The pair's instrumental interplay is equally compelling, with Loretta's harp textures dancing in and around Curtis' deft guitar and mandolin lines."                          ... Dirytyy Linen

FIRST LIVESTREAM EVER, MAY 12 AT 7 PM 

Like all musicians, all of our gigs are canceled for the foreseeable future. The good news is that we're doing our first livestream ever, May 12 at 7 pm. Please join us at http://www.Facebook.com/CurtisandLoretta. We'll be doing an hour of poignant songs and fun songs, with tight harmonies, and folk harp, mandocello, guitars, banjo and ukulele. We'll be doing mostly originals, with one brand new one, "Beauty of the Song." Tune in, live from our home to yours!

TOUR TO EAST COAST CANCELED 

Our tour to the East Coast has been canceled, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We had so looked forward to returning to these wonderful venues, plus performing at new ones. We'll try to re-schedule for a later date, when the world is "back to normal." These are strange times such as we've never seen before, but we are lifted up by all the acts of kindness we see everyday, as people reach out to help others through this. Stay safe and healthy, stay home if you can, and we'll see you as soon as we can!! 

We're new artists on MnSpin! 

 

MnSpin, the online music service from Hennepin County Library has just released the 2019 collection with more than 90 additional albums by local artists, growing the platform to more than 200 albums in 18 genres.

 And we're honored to say that Curtis & Loretta's "When There's Good to Be Done" is on it !!! You can check it out here!

April 11 Concert in St James changed to May 2 

Mother Nature has won out again! A blizzard is coming through Minnesota on Thursday, April 11, and we've had to change the date of the concert in St James to May 2. We're trusting that there won't be any more snow in May !! We're sorry for any inconvenience. The forecast sounds positively scary, even for us tough Minnesotans; up to two feet of snow in St James, and white-out driving conditions. 

Earlier, we had to re-schedule our concert in Owatonna from March 9, to May 4, also because of extreme winter…

Come on down for an evening of poignant songs, funny songs, Curtis' crazy stories, and more! The Underground also has delicious food, including…

Uplifting News from WTIP Radio in Grand Marais, MN 

Last October, we did a live radio show on WTIP in Grand Marais. We chatted about the music tour we were doing at Arrowhead Libraries, and we sang a song I'd written, "When There's Good to Be Done." It's a true story about Christy Harding, a young woman who donated a kidney to a little girl she'd never met before.

We got this email recently -

"Loretta, we learned recently that one of our listeners was so inspired by a story and song YOU shared on our show that he actually donated a kidney to a stranger. So…

It's been re-scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 2 pm.

 

It will still be a "When There's Good to Be Done" show, and Peter Razor will be on hand to talk and answer…
