Pat, who is going on 107 years old, says she was surprised that her difficulty breathing was caused by a heart problem, not her lungs.
I had been hearing about this really good songwriter from the Iron Range. A young girl. Musicians who stopped by the station would mention her name. From Aitkin. Promoters of festivals would be excited to have her. Also plays the harmonica. Producers would expect her to, “not be around here long, this girl is going places”. And they were right. I am very excited to have Aurora Baer in-studio this week on Centerstage MN. Trust me, you’re going to love this 🙂
On her way to 22 years old and still new to the being a professional musician, Aurora is breathtaking. She has a very emotional and powerful voice and writes a unique style of acoustic soul-blues. When asked about music and songwriting as a form of therapy, she said, “Definitely I consider it for me and for the listener. But isn’t that the point, isn’t that the point of music? I mean, that’s kind of a broad question but: what is the point of music? Isn’t it… to help people deal with things and process emotions, you know. Big part of it. Why do you go see live music? Because it makes you feel better and allows you to move stuff in your mind and deal with things. Or teach lessons, tell stories, you know. “
