Sue Orfield, long time resident of the Chippewa Valley, and Menomonie native, is this years’ Artist in Residence at the Mabel Tainter. Collaborations, musical adventures and unexpected shenanigans are sure to appear on the Mabel’s stage, as Sue creates new music with one of the Midwest’s most exciting and talented artists: Jennifer Grimm (Minneapolis, MN).
Growing up on the road was fun for Jennifer as she danced and sang her way across the country with her family's variety act for the first thirteen years of her life. After settling down in the Twin Cities in her teens, she attended public school for the first time and kept performing with her mother, Colleen Raye, in various venues including the Mall of America, Treasure Island Casino and Mystic Lake Casino.
While earning her degree in Mathematics from Augsburg College, Jennifer continued singing in clubs with 10-piece funk bands, in various cabaret and theater venues with theater companies, and in convention halls and churches as a featured vocalist with Augsburg College's Gospel Praise.
Soon after college, Jennifer ventured into her solo career, appearing on stages locally with such names as Garrison Keillor and Debbie Duncan, and in New York City, Europe and the Caribbean. With radio and recording success in local areas and overseas, Jennifer continues to base herself at home in the Twin Cities.
