Brian Laidlaw receives arts grant to record

Yes!Lets member Brian Laidlaw has been awarded a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant to record his next album.

Laidlaw will collaborate with instrumentalist and Hibbing native, Danny Vitali, to research and produce the album "Echolalia." This multimedia music project will incorporate interviews with current Hibbing residents around issues of land use, mining, and urban expansion. A weeklong tour of towns on the Iron Range will follow the album's release in Hibbing.
