Join us this Friday the 8th at 1 p.m. for the first in our Legacy Fall Series. Bill Jamerson, a LARL fan favorite, will present songs and stories about Michigan's Upper Peninusla. Due to it's isolation, many of the area's cultural traditions have been preserved. You'll love these stories about growing up in the 1930s, and how people lived simple yet rewarding lives, similar to those experienced by miners in Minnesota's Iron Range. This event is made possible through funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund ... See MoreSee Less
