3 Time MN State Fiddle Champion Mary LaPlant
By Centerstage MN host Doug MacRostie. I could sit and talk with Mary LaPlant all day; she’s one of those positive people that is just fun to be around. Classically trained on the violin, Mary is a 3 Time MN State Fiddle Champion with 2 albums out, Serenity & Out of Nowhere. Her style is lyrical and sure. While Mary clearly loves music, her concern for the environment was stronger and she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry and Minor in Music. With the sounds of the woods and birds recorded and mixed into her albums, you can close your eyes and picture her sitting high in a tree playing music with the wilderness. Mary says, “When I’m playing violin and when I’m in the forest, time stands still and I am fully alive”. She’ll perform in-studio for us and we’ll talk about her music this week on Centerstage MN.
