NELL receives grant for concert
Northern Exposure to Lifelong Learning has been awarded a grant through the Region 2 Arts Council Legacy Grant Program to bring two musical duos to the area for a late-summer concert, titled "Global Festival." The concert will be held Aug. 28.
The performers are Laura McKenzie and Gary Rue, whose music reflects their Irish and Scottish roots, and Kathy and Leo Lara, whose work is based on music from South America.
The event will include foods from the regions that are represented by the music. It will also coincide with the kickoff of NELL's eight-week fall season, whose theme is "Exploring Cultures Around the World, Past and Present."
The grant will also be used to hire an event manager. Interested individuals should contact Tamara Edevold at 218-694-2856. They can also send a letter before June 30, discussing ideas and experience, to NELL, P.O. Box 585, Bagley, MN 56621.
