When: Sun Apr 19, 2015 7:30pm to 9pm
CDT



Where: Minnesota State University, Mankato, Mankato, MN 56001, United States

Lucy Kaplansky started out singing in Chicago bars. Then, barely out of high school, she took off for New York City. There she found a fertile community of songwriters and performersSuzanne Vega, Steve Forbert, The Roches, and others. With a beautiful flair for harmony, Lucy was everyones favorite singing partner, but most often she found herself singing as a duo with Shawn Colvin. Kaplanskys voice has continued to remain in high demand by her peers. Her song Guilty as Sin was featured in the NBC television show Ed. In addition, she can be heard on recent releases by Nanci Griffith, and on the Greg Brown tribute album Going Driftless (also featuring Ani Difranco, Iris Dement, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams and others).

Online ordering closes at 12:00 noon the day of the event. Seating may still be available for this event if online ordering is closed.

Contact Dale Haefner at 507-389-5549 for seating availability.
