I can’t believe it’s already April! This was the easiest winter I’ve seen yet in the Keweenaw, but I still can’t complain about melting snow and early spring crocuses in my yard. With the new season comes some new musical and fiber arts happenings that I’m pretty excited about.
This month in music:
Sat. 4/8/17 6:30pm – Night of Hope Relay for Life – solo hammered dulcimer (Rozsa Center at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI)
Thu. 4/27/17 7:00pm – Music at the Museum: Songs of the Copper Country – hammered dulcimer with Oren Tikkanen [guitar, mandolin, vocals], Alice Margerum [vocals, mandolin], and Kevin Blackstone [guitar, banjo, vocals] (Carnegie Museum, Houghton, MI)
This month in fiber arts:
Two of my fiber pieces are currently on display in the Finlandia University International School of Art & Design Juried Student Exhibition. Along with fiber arts, the show includes some great paintings, drawings, ceramics, and even furniture. It will be up at the Finnish American Heritage Center gallery in Hancock, MI until April 19th, 2017.
By popular demand I’ll be teaching another knitting class this summer in Houghton. We’re still working out the details, but the session will begin during the last week of May and it will likely be a Knitting Lab class that will allow students of varied levels to work at their own speed. If you’re interested in registering contact me soon. The class size is limited and we’re already approaching capacity.
I’m also gearing up to submit some summer art show applications so keep an eye out for news on where you’ll find me and the woolies this summer.
