Fergus Falls Daily Journal, Minn.

June 26--Lakes Area Community Center in Battle Lake will usher in the Fourth of July weekend with a new face and sound as Sophie Thiel brings her musical talents to the "Come to the Lakes" summer concert series at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 3.

She will be accompanied by Daniel Macfarlane of Bavaria, Germany, who teaches guitar.

Thiel is from Ottertail but is not new to the area, her father, Pete, and his parents are from Henning.

Thiel's music includes "something old and something new." She sings the music of Sarah McLachlan, Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra and Rufus Wainwright.

Sophie classifies her music style as "acoustic duo" because they cover a wide range of styles, a little bit of everything.

Her original album "Sophie the Ep" will be released this summer.

She has filmed two music video projects with Callamari Productions.

The Thursday concerts are free, however donations are appreciated.

All the concerts are sponsored by our local businesses.
