Becky Schlegel has a gift for taking life’s experiences and transforming them into songs that are passionate and unique. Her music is a fusion of folk, bluegrass and country that is mesmerizing.
Repeatedly recognized by the International Bluegrass Music Association as an outstanding songwriter, Schlegel sings with an effortless, angelic and wistful soprano that accentuates the meanings of her insightful lyrics. Her latest CD, “Dandelion,” includes four songs ranked among “That Nashville Sound’s Top 100 songs of 2010.”
While living in Minnesota, she performed several times for Garrison Keillor’s Minnesota Public Radio program, “A Prairie Home Companion.” She’s received several awards from the Minnesota Music Academy.
Schlegel now lives in Nashville, and Crossings is delighted to bring her back to Southeast Minnesota audiences. Schlegel hasn’t forgotten her roots, but her heart and her music know no bounds. She continues to explore, dream, write and sing songs of life and love – of heartache and redemption. Her music is diverse; a compelling, almost spiritual ride that is the embodiment of a fascinating woman and her engaging stories.
