Minneapolis is such a great music city that artists actually move here to jump-start their careers. One such artist is this week’s featured musician: Mason Jennings. With a real folk-rock feeling to his music, he’s quickly shot to the top of my list of acts to catch here in town and in large part to songs like “The Field,” a heartbreaking song from the perspective of a heartbroken father to his soldier son. This song usually brings tears to my eyes, and this performance at The Current auditorium is fantastic:
His latest work is a piano based album with an appropriately named track called “Minnesota.” Enjoy!
