The Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association will host the Becky Schlegel Band at 7:30 p.m. March 8 at the Paul Bunyan Nature Learning Center near Brainerd.
Schlegel is a singer-songwriter. The title song of her new album, "Red Leaf," was awarded Music City Minnesota Song of the Year in February 2002. She was named Bluegrass/Old-Time Artist of the Year at the Minnesota Music Awards for 2002, and the album "Red Leaf" was honored with Bluegrass/Old-Time Recording of the Year.
Twin Cities Revue says, "Vocalist and front woman Becky Schlegel is blessed with a pure, chiming, miracle of a voice. ... When the (song) finds her longing for her home in 'the hills of West Virginia,' it doesn't really matter if she lives in Farmington, Minnesota -- the heartfelt phrasing and strong, emotive singing illustrate clearly that home, regardless of geography, is a place where one is loved."
General admission tickets are $8 in advance at Lakes Music in Pequot Lakes and Coco Moon in Brainerd and $10 at the door. Call 800-635-3037.
