SHEVLIN — The Clearwater County Historical Society and will host a meal and concert event on Saturday, April 30, at Clearwater Lutheran Church, 186 Second St. W, in Shevlin.
The event will include a scalloped potatoes and ham dinner from 5 to 6:30 p.m. before a concert at 7 p.m.
The Lost Forty duo will take the stage offering “Songs From Minneso-tio. Folk Songs and History From the North Woods" This concert is part of an Arts Grant for performances around the state, which includes the Clearwater County Historical Society.
"A native of the northern Minnesota logging town of Bemidji, Brian Miller teams up with Wisconsinite Randy Gosa to perform the Irish-influenced music of men who roamed the Great Lakes region in the days when pine was king," a release said.
Miller and Gosa are both renowned in the Irish traditional music world for their work with top artists (including Bua and Myserk) in the U.S. and Ireland. As a duo, they mix a passion for Northwoods history and folklore with their finely honed approach to song arrangement to bring this rich but under-explored music to life, the release said.
Proceeds from the dinner will support church activities. Donations will be accepted.
