BEMIDJI—The skeleton of One Eyed Willy sits in the corner, with an eyepatch and crooked grin. A cannon is pointed outward from the area.

This year, that award went to the pirate-themed team Anderson Fabrics' the Scurvy Stitchers, from Blackduck. But how did the Scurvy Stitchers come up with the theme?

BEMIDJI—There will be some "black and blues" music coming to Bemidji when Adam Hammer, Dave Cofell and guest guitarist and songwriter Nathan Ness perform a Folk 'n' Blues Show at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Rail River Folk School. But what exactly is "black and blues" music? Hammer said the origin of that term came when he had a set of songs that didn't fit in with the rest of the material on his 2012 album, "Broken Like You." So he and Cofell (whom he met in 2009 at an open mic event in St. Joseph, Minn.) started a side project to perform that material.
