I learned of Sweet Lou’s passing today. A legendary, one of a kind woman who was a Minneapolis institution that ticked the ivories at Nye’s Polonaise Room for 45 years.
A group of us caught Lou’s act one last time during of her final month at Nye’s back in 2011. I believe we were properly lubricated while the room sang “Sweet Caroline” on what was a memorable night.
Thank you for sharing the gift of music for so many year.
