Mostly Minnesota Music on WMCN – theme covers – guest stars Lynn O’Brien and Blair Ransom & Leng Moua from Wild Age

We were delighted to have two sets of guest stars today at the studio. We got a sneak preview of Lynn O’Brien’s latest album Rising. It will be released at a sold out show at Hook and Ladder on Thursday (Dec 6) but you can listen to a few tunes below. My favorite is the title track – which celebrates the movements happening lately to lift up all people. We also had Blair Ransom and Leng Moua from Wild Age. They are playing at the Moon Palace on January 13. They are getting some traction with their latest CD, Sea of Health. I love the flow of it and look forward to their new work in 2019. The theme was covers, which made for some interesting choices. I feel like very guy I knew (round about my age) suggested Slave Raider!

We talked about Wild Age’s latest video venture:
