A glorious return of outdoor Twin Cities music! Cutrufello, Connecticut-raised and Yale-educated, Texas honky-tonk heroine, fiery Midwestern roots-rocker, mixes jangly chords of the heartland with a Texas twang. Having spent nearly a decade working the Texas “triangle circuit” (Austin, Houston, Dallas), she landed in the Twin Cities in 2001 at the end of a tour opening for the Allman Brothers. She paused her singing career when vocal cord problems temporarily silenced her, but she’s back now “singing with a whole other level of nuance” and a lot of energy and soul!
