Gaelynn Lea Wraps Up Duluth Homegrown Music Festival

DULUTH, Minn. — A successful rebound is what you could call this year’s Homegrown after not having it in person the last two years.

The week was a huge success in the Twin Ports and the cherry on top was a last performance on Sunday by Gaelynn Lea at the Duluth Public Library Plaza.

She had just returned from New York City where she spent time writing and recording music for Macbeth on Broadway.

So to come play in front of a home crowd to finish homegrown was a great feeling.

“It was the first time I had ever done anything like that so it was kind of a daunting task but it was really fun and it was super cool that I got to play a little bit of that at homegrown because a lot of the people in Duluth kept sending encouraging notes and were really supportive so it was fun to be able to bring some of that back here today,” Lea said.

Macbeth is running on Broadway until mid-July.
