Duluth’s Gaelynn Lea was the Current‘s Minnesota Music Month featured artist of the day on April 23. This video is part of a series the singer-songwriter and violinist contributed as educational videos to YourClassical MPR.
Longing for hot summer-concert days? Well, PDD posted a Black-eyed Snakes concert video here from last summer … and it mysteriously disappeared from YouTube the next day.

Duluth’s Gaelynn Lea gave a lecture titled “Sexuality and Disability: Forging Identity in a World that Leaves You Out” during a TEDx event at Yale University in October. It made its way to YouTube a few weeks ago.
Lea once felt left out of mainstream dating and beauty culture due to her physical disability. In her talk, she recounts the epiphany that empowered her to pursue life, love and a musical career on her own terms.
