Indie artist, author and podcaster Laura Veirs celebrates the release of her highly anticipated new album The Lookout with a solo show featuring special performances by some of Minnesota’s top musical talent. This comes hot on the heels of the publication of her children’s book Libba: The Magnificent Musical Life of Elizabeth Cotten and the launch of her Midnight Lightning podcast. Veirs’ most recent album case/lang/veirs was a collaborative project with k.d. lang and Neko Case and was called “a stunner” by Paste Magazine.
Hosted by The Current’s Andrea Swensson, this MN Music Summit concert will feature guest performances by Jayanthi Kyle and Prairie Fire Lady Choir and will include a special presentation of the 2018 Minnesota Music Champion Award.
Laura Veirs will also be speaking at 12 pm on Friday, April 13 at The O’Shaughnessy, delivering a free keynote address for the 2018 MN Music Summit.”
