Former Sauk Rapids Guitarist Being Added to MN Music Hall of Fame [VIDEO]

NEW ULM – A well known and beloved Sauk Rapids-based guitar player will be posthumously added to the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame this evening.

Leroy Glazier was known throughout the Midwest and Canada for his highly-skilled, classic country guitar-playing, and was asked to play along with performers like George Jones during Minnesota shows.

Glazier was born in Canada but made a home in Sauk Rapids beginning in 1970. Glazier was heard frequently playing with the house band at Sandstone’s Midwest Country Music Theater, where he also served as music director.

Glazier lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2008, and tonight he’ll be remembered as his name joins the list other legendary Minnesota musicians who’ve been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The ceremony kicks off at the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in New Ulm beginning at 5:00 p.m. for more information, you can call 507-359-9015, or visit the MN Music Hall of Fame website.
