Singer-songwriter Haley Bonar is one of the staples of the Minnesota music scene, so it took a lot of people by surprise when she moved to Portland, Ore. two years ago. Well, the good news is that she's back in our wonderful state, the better news is that she released an excellent new album, Golder, this past spring, and the even better news is that The Current invited her to bring her dreamy, introspective alt-country sound to our State Fair stage once again!
