Husband-wife folk duo to perform July 9 at Pequot Lakes Library
Curtis and Loretta, a husband and wife folk duo, will perform their concert, Singing Tales of Truth, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 9, at the Pequot Lakes Library.
The duo plays a parade of stringed instruments, and their original songs and traditional pieces are from the British Isles, America and beyond.
Their current musical menagerie includes Celtic harp, mandocello, mandolin, guitars, claw-hammer banjo and national steel ukulele, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica and shakers.
They write songs about heroism and integrity of real-life, ordinary people, often people they actually know. "Angel of Bergen-Belsen" is the story of Luba Tryszynska, a Holocaust survivor who saved 54 children during World War II. Curtis and Loretta sought her out and met her after writing the song.
"Gone Forever" tells the heart-wrenching story of Loretta coming to terms with her dad's Alzheimer's.
This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota in 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota's art and cultural heritage. It is open to anyone interested.
