Gealynn Lea. A musician from Duluth, MN, she has been playing violin for over twenty years. She began learning traditional Celtic and American fiddle tunes at the age of 18.

Her experimental fiddle tunes aim to create a meditative, layered sound that allows the listener’s mind to drift. Gaelynn has played alongside many notable Minnesota musicians over the years, including Alan Sparhawk, Charlie Parr, and Billy McLaughlin. $15. Mary Ives Studio Theater. Reif Center. 720 Conifer Dr.
