Ingeborg Von Agassiz

Ingeborg Von Agassiz| O Giver of Dreams

Duluth-based artist Ingeborg Von Agassiz is more than just a mouthful to pronounce. Von Agassiz, whose actual name is Emma Rusten, draws her moniker from two 12th century influences, Hildegard Von Bingen and Eleanor of Aquitaine, two of the most accomplished women in the Medieval era. Her newest project , O Giver of Dreams, is self-produced and described as a “Hank Williams melody with a Hip Hop beat;” truly her music is a unique blend of vocals, acoustics and drum production.

KUMD Album Review: Sonny Knight & The Lakers

Feb 14, 2018

Sonny Knight & The Lakers | I’m Still Here

In honor of Black History Month, we’re revisiting a 2014 album from the late Minnesota musician Sonny Knight.

Saint Paul native Knight was an artist who, among other things, helped revive classic soul in a Midwest city known for its funky rhythm and ‘80s icons. His background ranged from a gospel –filled childhood to seeing the world, fighting in Vietnam and later touring with his band The Lakers. Sonny brings a very cultured and honest take and blends genres, allowing music to flow from the soul.

The Hunt for the Frozen 45 begins February 18th! We have hidden the golden record, will you be the one to find it?

Accomplish this and become the winner of The Duluth Starter Pack (camping hammock, waterproof Bluetooth speaker, and other outdoor essentials) and four tickets to see Dessa at SOUND in Duluth.
