NISSWA-Jillian Rae will make her series debut in the Grassroots Concert Series at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Live Well Night Club and Coffee Bar at the Journey Church in Nisswa.

She will be accompanied by three supporting musicians for this event.

"Rae is a multi-talented violinist, lead vocalist and songwriter whose creative and dynamic style of violin playing, along with her lifelong experience as a performer, lend her an assured stage presence," a news release stated. "She has an innate ability to create hook-laden tunes affirming the positives of life in the face of struggle and disappointment."

Rae was named one of five finalists in Vita.mn's 2014 "Are You Local?" contest to find the best new Twin Cities band.

Rae has been a heavy hitter in the Minnesota music scene for years, playing with many musicians on stage, in the studio or both. Currently, when she isn't performing with her own band, she can be seen playing fiddle and singing with a number of bands around the Twin Cities.

Like many of Minnesota's finest musicians, Rae grew up on the Iron Range in an environment open to country, folk, polka, pop, rock and blues.

Raised in a music-loving household, she began taking violin lessons at age 7. From there, she began to sing, dance and perform and has been working hard at perfecting her art ever since.
