Lauren Pelon will trace the story of music, performing music from around the world on lute, guitar, lyre, recorders, hurdy-gurdy, concertina and many more instruments. A vocalist as well, Lauren will sing a selection of original songs and ancient ballads. A recipient of a 2001 "Artist of the Year" award from Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council, and 2010 Artist Initiative Award from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Lauren studied the history of music and instrumentation both in America and overseas. This program will mix in her own original compositions with her arrangements of music from ancient Greece, medieval Europe, and contemporary Africa and Middle East. William Kearns of the American Music Research Center in Boulder Colorado called the program "Captivating and awesome". Don't miss this incredible performance.
