Help craft a song
about the state!

A new year is beginning - our dear state's sesquicentennial year - and our friend Ann Reed is embarking on an ambitious statewide tour to write a Song for Minnesota.

Reed, a prolific singer-songwriter and frequent guest on The Morning Show, has been selected as the Minnesota Public Radio Troubadour. She'll be touring greater Minnesota, performing at six MPR-produced and sesquicentennial-sanctioned concerts from January to May. In the tourís grand finale at the Fitzgerald Theater, Reed will debut her new song about Minnesota.

"She's got kind of a tough job as she goes about this," Connelly admits. "'Minnesota' is a tough name to turn into a song."

Not only will it be a Song for Minnesota, it will be a Song of Minnesota because it will be a Song written with Minnesota.
