Virtual Musical Residency



We are excited to launch our new Virtual Musical Residency with the multi-talented, St. Paul resident Lucy Michelle. Lucy will be offering us new original performances for the next few weeks and sharing some of her favorite book and music selections.

Lucy Michelle is a songwriter as serious as they come. Twin Cities natives will know her as frontwoman of gypsy-pop outfit Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, a raucous and eclectic six-piece which has now become rock pop quartet Little Fevers. At home and on the road, Lucy has stood boldly amidst that chugging whirlwind of cello and accordion, stomping her foot and singing out fiercely over the top of it all. In addition to performing with the Velvet Lapelles and Little Fevers, Lucy also released the solo album, “Attack of the Heart.”

The Saint Paul Public Library wants to help connect our community members to original performances by local musicians during a time when we are unable to attend concerts in-person. Stay tuned for more announcements of future virtual musical residencies!

This program is made possible by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
