Schlegel will perform 8 p.m. Friday Aug. 17 in Zumbrota.
Repeatedly recognized by the International Bluegrass Music Association as an outstanding songwriter, Schlegel sings with a wistful soprano. Her latest album, “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.
Her soprano is “clear and expressive. [Her] voice can go gritty at times or break appropriately or soar to ethereal heights or drift off in a whisper,” according to the monthly magazine Bluegrass Unlimited.
Schlegel now lives in Nashville.
