Hibbing native jazz singer Evingson featured on NPR

Jazz singer Connie Evingson was featured on last week’s “Weekend Edition” on NPR, giving a charming interview about her music and upbringing on Minnesota’s Iron Range. Evingson was raised just down the street from Bob Dylan’s boyhood home in Hibbing, Minnesota. She’s played a number of shows on the Iron Range over the years.

The story of the Iron Range is so seldom told by jazz musicians on NPR, I figured I better share the original interview. The Duluth News Tribune also wrote a story on this topic.
