Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
After a tumultuous year, the Minnesota music scene has its eye on rebuilding. The Current is launching LineCheck, a series of virtual conversations with the Minnesota music community about how to make sure we're not just returning to a new normal, but coming back even better than before.
The past year has been difficult for everyone, but artists have been hit especially hard, from loss of work and income to barriers to connecting with their own creative communities. We'll take stock of the emotional toll this year has taken, talk about how artists are faring now, and explore ways to move forward. We'll also explore the many resources provided by the state to support artists.
Facilitator: Sarah Souder Johnson
Panelists: Annie Mack, Nazeem Jalees (Blood $moke Body), Davina Lozier (Davina & the Vagabonds)
Performer: Mary Bue
LineCheck is made possible in part by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
