GoFundMe Campaign For Lonnie Knight
Lonnie KnightThe friends and family of Lonnie Knight ask you to join us in supporting Lonnie’s fight against esophageal cancer.

You most likely know Lonnie as one of Minnesota’s finest musicians. He is a stellar guitar player, singer and songwriter who has earned several Minnesota Awards for best guitarist. He has produced many CDs and his music has touched hearts around the world.

We have been blessed by Lonnie’s music for decades. Let’s join together to give Lonnie the gift of life and in return we will continue to enjoy the blessings of his music and the joy of living life together. — from Joan Hanson
