St. Paul, Minn. — It's both a preview of their inaugural concert and an introduction to the personalities and colorful characters and music that are a part of Ensemble 61. In the Regional Spotlight this week is the newest new music ensemble in the metro area.

The group's name was inspired by Bob Dylan's album, "Highway 61 Revisited". In fact, Ensemble 61 hopes to tour all along Highway 61 from Canada to New Orleans. A group with big plans, members of Ensemble 61 join Steve Staruch in the Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser Studio.
