Reed has not forgotten those who just want to hear her sing, however. She's scheduled to appear at the Twin Cities Pride Festival on June 28.
If you miss that performance, you'll either have to join the groupies who follow her all over the country or catch her next year when she returns to the Guthrie Theater to release her 12th album. Nope, it's not recorded yet. Not even written.
But after 18 years in a business that Bonnie Raitt once said "eats its young," Reed isn't about to stop now.
