Award winning husband-and-wife duo “Curtis & Loretta” will be in concert at legendary folk music concert hall Oak Center General Store just outside Lake City, on Saturday, Oct 19 at 8 pm.

Hailing from Minneapolis, Curtis & Loretta’s music comes straight from the heart. The folk singer/songwriter duo’s performances feature tight vocal harmonies, guitars, folk harp, mandocello, banjo and ukulele, all underscored by their deep connection with their listeners. 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.

The duo tours across the U.S., delivering their poignant original songs along with carefully chosen traditional songs. City Pages named them “Best Acoustic Performers of the Twin Cities.”

A grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board backed their latest CD, “When There’s Good to Be Done," which is all songs Loretta wrote about “unsung heroes;” real-life people who overcame great challenges in their lives. The recording was on “Top Albums of 2016” on the folk radio charts (folk-dj). Loretta sought out and interviewed twelve people for the songs, including a woman who donated a kidney to a toddler she didn’t know, a WWII veteran who saved another man’s life, a “marriage against the odds” story from the 1940s, a couple raising kids on the severe end of the autism spectrum, and more. Minnesota Bluegrass Magazine said, “These are amazing stories… each song is more powerful than the last.”
