Mindi Abair

You don’t often hear of a musician graduating magnum cum laude from Berklee College of Music and going on to perform as an unpaid street musician, as Mindi Abair did. She’s since gone on to play with Duran Duran, Teena Marie, Keb’ Mo,’ The Backstreet Boys and Mandy Moore. Her new album, In Hi-Fi Stereo, captures the raw and edgy aesthetic of that golden age, when a slab of vinyl could instantaneously put band and listener together in the same room and establish a visceral and enduring connection. Mindi Abair performs at the Dell Music Center.
