Live from Minnesota presents…

Brian Laidlaw
Produced by Flor Trevino

California native Brian Laidlaw considers himself a poet first and musician second. After several years of touring, Laidlaw settled in Minneapolis to earn his Masters of Fine Art in poetry at the University of Minnesota. He wrote the album “wolf wolf wolf” as the audio counterpart to his masters’ thesis and released it in the fall of 2011. In this edition of Live from Minnesota, Laidlaw shares his poetry, music and insight on blending of these art forms. For more information, go to brianlaidlaw.com. Produced for KFAI by Flor Trevino.

During the first hour we listened to a live concert of Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys at the Cedar Cultural Center. Recording engineer was Chris Dronen.
During the second hour we had special guest Nirmala Rajasekar playing veena and Srinivasan on mridangam sharing live music from South India.

A very special Mother’s Day Songs of Praise Program with cohost Tammy Lashelle. Tammy Lashelle is Hattie B’s daughter and is proud of it. We had a good time playing music that pertained to mothers on this their special day.
