Join us as Mall of America® presents an ongoing series with Minnesota Music Coalition, an organization that connects + supports Minnesota’s creative community of independent musicians. Each week, a Minnesota musician will perform for our guests live, representing a wide variety of musical genres. This week, the artist is Curtis + Loretta.
Curtis + Loretta are a folk singer-songwriter duo, guided by their love of good songs and inspired by the stories of people they have met in their over 40 years of touring. Weaving together soaring harmonies with a wild menagerie of instruments that includes guitars, harp, mandocello, banjo, ukulele, kazoo, harmonica, and percussion, the duo perform traditionally-inspired originals with humor and heart. Curtis’ down-home sense of humor and Loretta’s theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between. They rack up countless miles each year, crisscrossing the country to deliver their own unique brand of folk singer/songwriter music.
