Independent, emotional and edgy - all of that and more on Centerstage MN...

Centerstage MN is on 91.7 KAXE everything Thursday evening starting at 6 (and rebroadcast Sunday mornings at 6 - you can listen live online, or on the radio). It's our program where we showcase the talents of MN musicians - Hi, I'm Doug MacRostie.

Tonight I'll start off with a feature of local, independent musicians starting with native flutist Ann Aitkin, a senior at Cass Lake - Bena Highschool. That will be followed by Holly Simons Newton from Grand Rapids and her piano improvisation and Emily Antonson's "Solo Demo" piano/vocal release - she grew up in Pengilley and is attended school at the U of M.

Then, I'll be talking with Thea Ennen and Lisa Kane. Both of them are singer songwriters, Thea plays Piano (and you might recognize her from Thea and the Algorhythms from the late 90 Twin Cities music scene) and Lisa on guitar. I'll talk with them about songwriting and performing in MN.

Also, a Valentines Day tribute from The Limns and new music (to the show) from Wookiefoot (crazy happy hoppin' jam band from Minneapolis) and Kritical Kontact (crazy hip hoppin' rap group out of Duluth).
