May 22nd, 2011

Hi All,

Before we get the the playlist, just another reminder of the very cool new exhibit brought to the area by the Nicollet County Historical Society and the Arts Center of St. Peter: "New Harmonies: American Roots Music." Here's a blog post about the exhibit from Ben Leonard, Executive Director of the Nicollet County Historical Society. And here's a story in the Saint Peter Herald about the exhibit as well as a link to the Arts Center of Saint Peter where you can find more info about the exhibit and the great programming related to it.

Now about the show on the 22nd...
