A collage of love!
Minneapolis singer-songwriter Mason Jennings draws inspiration from his own life and family: for one of his albums, he started writing music when his six-year-old son saw an electric guitar ornament on the family Christmas tree and asked what it was. Since the late 1990s he's accumulated a songbag of consistently high quality, covering themes from personal to political to historical. A staple of outdoor festivals from the Midwest to California, Mason has toured with surfer-songwriter Jack Johnson and was recently signed to his Brushfire label. He comes to Michigan with a new release, "Minnesota," that sets his experiences of love and family against the geography of his native state.
