Michelle VanCura explores history and biographies using music and storytelling. She specializes in taking true stories from the past and presenting them in an engaging way with folk music.
Show highlights from the past include the Des Moines Art Festival, Austin Artsworks Festival, La Crosse’s Great River Folk Festival, Minneapolis’ Lake Harriet BandShell, and Wausa’s Festival of the Arts – among hundreds of other performances. Michelle has shared the stage with musicians such as Pieta Brown, Bo Ramsey, and Lissie, and opened for musicians as diverse as Chris Koza, Koo Koo Kangaroo, and Joe and Vicki Price.
Her original music is one part of a larger project focused on creativity throughout history, distilling research into songs, classes, and written articles about inventors, artists, authors, entrepreneurs, and explorers. Michelle owns an online education business and loves teaching in a variety of mediums about topics relevant to curious and passionate learners.
