“Were you stuck at home for two years, like us, during the brunt of the pandemic? As full-time musicians, it was the first time in many years that we found a wealth of time to reflect upon what is really important in this life – what things to get rid of, and what things to keep and build upon. And it taught us not to take for granted the most important and special people in our lives. As a musician, this translated into many new songs inspired by the ongoing pandemic; songs of clear vision, letting go, forging ahead, exploring new pathways, and building upon the inspiration we see in our lives and the lives of others.
This collection of songs encompass both the serious and the not so serious! Join us, Curtis & Loretta, for this musical event that will shine a light on what we’ve all lived through. This will be a chance to share together what we’ve learned in this most intense and uncommon time.
Curtis Teague and Loretta Simonet are a Minneapolis based husband-and-wife duo, featuring
tight vocal harmonies, folk harp, guitars, mandocello, banjo, ukulele and harmonica.
