Connie Evingson Coming Back To Duluth, Bringing Jazz To Mitchell Auditorium October 11

used by permission

Jazz vocalist Connie Evingson was born in Hibbing Minnesota. Lived in Duluth for a short time and then made a home in Minneapolis. She grew up in a musical family and didn’t plan to be a jazz singer, but time and travels eventually brought her back to jazz.

The Mitchell Performing Arts Center welcomes Connie back to Duluth with a concert featuring songs from her cds, including her latest “Sweet Happy Life”.  She has been a featured guest artist with the Minnesota Orchestra conducted by Doc Severinsen, the Toronto Symphony, Vocalessence, Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion and the JazzMN Big Band. She appears regularly at the nationally renowned Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis and is the featured artist on the Jazz at the Jungle concert series at the Jungle Theater in Minneapolis. Connie has been featured on the Smithsonian’s Jazz Singers radio series and NPR’s Fresh Air, and her eight CDs on Minnehaha Music have all charted in the Top 50 in the U.S. and Canada.

I was able to talk with her about her life in the jazz music, where music started in her life. How she first got into music and performing, and who some of her idols are.
