Heather Masse

October 21 – Heather Masse
Singer-songmaker Heather Masse is steeped in the jazz tradition, which informs her distinct approach to singing folk, pop and bluegrass. Masse is a member of the Billboard-charting folk group, The Wailin’ Jennys, and she has been a frequent guest on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion radio show. In 2016, Masse teamed up with jazz trombone maverick Roswell Rudd for August Love Song, an unlikely collaboration between vocals and trombone. The album features masterfully reworked standards of mutual favorites by Gigi Gryce, the Gershwins, Duke Ellington and Dizzy Gillespie as well as originals from Rudd, his partner, composer Verna Gillis, and Masse, including "Love Song for August" (August is Heather's son).

Chastity Brown

November 18 – Chastity Brown
Throw together all genres and hyphenates you want to describe Chastity Brown  – indie, roots & soul, rock, blues & country – they are alright, and also not enough. She channels songs that are carried deep in the American psyche – the hunger, desperation and confidence that runs through our times. Coming from Tennessee to Minnesota, touring the country, touring Europe, she has had half her own lifetime and a million lifetimes gone before her to concoct her powerful sound and has spent much of 2016 touring with Ani DiFranco (at DiFranco’s invitation). She was chosen as “Minneapolis’ Best Folk Artist” in 2012. Brown has also been involved with many non-profits and charitable events, including “Think Out Loud,” a Twin Cities effort to end homelessness through music.

Peter Ostroushko

December 16 – Peter Ostroushko
Over the course of a long and outstanding career, mandolinist/composer Peter Ostroushko has come to be regarded as one of the finest players in acoustic music. A dazzling mastery of stringed instruments and a flair for composing have earned this born-and-bred Minnesotan an international reputation. Since his first recording session—an uncredited mandolin set on Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Track —Peter has gone on to release a string of critically acclaimed albums. His extraordinary works have been performed by the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Kremlin Chamber Orchestra, among others, and his music is featured on broadcast specials such as the Ken Burns films Lewis & Clark and The National Parks, and Twin Cities Public Television’s Minnesota: A History of the Land, for which Peter won an Emmy.
