Katey Sagal to sing at 'Sons of Anarchy' event in Minneapolis

"Sons of Anarchy" star Katey Sagal is rolling into Minneapolis for a unique gig that involves her hit FX show, the Star Tribune reports.

Sagal and co-stars Theo Rossi (Juice) and Ryan Hurst (Opie) will be on-hand at Mill City Nights Saturday for the "Sons of Anarchy: A Evening of Music with Katey Sagal & the Cast of SOA", which will open with Curtis Stigers singing the theme song from the series.

The "Sons of Anarchy" stars will take questions from the audience at the event, and Sagal is scheduled to sing.

Unbeknownst to some fans, Sagal, 59, has been singing for quite some time, and in the past has sung back-up vocals for the likes of Bette Midler, Oliva Newton-John, Tanya Tucker and KISS' Gene Simmons. She started voice lessons at age 5, learned guitar and piano entering her teenage years.

Sagal told the Star Tribune's Neal Justin that she's "surprised that people are still surprised" that she can sing.

The former "Married with Children" star, in fact, will get to show off her talents playing Artie's (Kevin McHale) mother on an upcoming episode of hit Fox show "Glee."

Sagal told Justin that singing is something she "would be what I’d do for a living," but then the cold, hard realities of the music business set in.

One heartache involved Minnesota native Bob Dylan in 1978. Sagal said she spent six weeks rehearing with the music legend, only to be fired with the other backup singers a week before the tour started.

Those who catch Sagal singing at Mill City Nights this weekend will be seeing a rare performance by Sagal.

According to Justin, Sagal and her backing band, the Forest Rangers, have scheduled only four shows, which will all stage all in the Midwest, before she needs to go back to shooting the 6th season of "Sons of Anarchy" in mid-May.

Fans can expect songs from the "Sons of Anarchy" soundtrack at Sagal's Saturday gig, as well as covers Ryan Adams, Laura Nyro and Ray LaMontagne, Justin said. The tunes will be a part of an upcoming solo album from Sagal.
