Harvey Ronglien turns 90 years old

You can come wish Harvey Ronglien a Happy 90th Birthday tomorrow, Fri May 5, at the Owatonna Center for the Arts / Orphanage Museum, in Owatonna, Minnesota. Open House from 3 pm - 6 pm. This extraordinary gentleman endured a love-less upbringing at the orphanage, but somehow grew up to be a generous and caring husband and father. He spent many years educating people about the history of the orphanage, starting the museum there, writing a book, and giving talks and tours. Such dedication.

I wrote the song "Case 9164" in 2015, after reading Harvey's book, and interviewing him. You can read more about him here.

The Critics Say...

"Loretta's almost operatic alto and Curtis' rich tenor form a lush, polished and varied vocal blend. The pair's instrumental interplay is equally compelling, with Loretta's harp textures dancing in and around Curtis' deft guitar and mandolin lines."
