SONGS OF MINNESOTY by THE LOST FORTY

Untitled design (4)

The Lost Forty crafts beautiful arrangements of rare old folk songs entwined with history. Their sources and their approach celebrate two centuries of Irish musical influence on the under-explored musical traditions of the north woods. Their show includes incredible archival photos, rich regional history and colorful stories depicting lumberjacks, Great Lakes sailors, railroad workers and farmers who toiled and sang in early Minnesota. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. It is also due to Legacy funding.
