This summer Bands on the Boulevard features local acts from the First Avenue scene. On July 23, Lena Elizabeth takes to the stage.
Based in Minneapolis, Lena Elizabeth writes songs influenced by folk storytelling with a voice rooted in the blues. The youngest in a household full of musicians, she succeeds in blending old and new influences to create a pop/roots sound that is approachable across generations. Lena Elizabeth released her first full length album, "Get It Right," in November 2018.
