Today's music is "The Root Beer Lady" from a new collection of music by the Twin Cities band Tree Party.
The songs are all based on the true stories of remarkable people from Minnesota's history. They are collected on a CD entitled "Iced Over: Thawing Minnesota's Local Lore."
Tree Party will perform the songs live at a CD release party on Sunday at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis.
The Root Beer Lady in the song was Dorothy Molter who lived on Knife Lake in the Boundary Waters for 56 years. She was famous for her homemade root beer which she sold to passing canoeists. Molter was the last permanent resident of the BWCA.
