North Country Faces and Places The Sutter Brothers—Ross and Bart—will present a 50-minute program of music and stories, poetry and song that explores the history, culture, people, critters, and landscape of northern Minnesota. For more than thirty years, The Sutter Brothers have performed shows that integrate Bart’s original writing with Ross’ versions of traditional Scandinavian and American songs and tunes. “North Country Faces and Places” will offer glimpses of early settlers, memories of a vanished village school, a peek inside a pioneer cabin, a lament for lost towns, praise for big bogs, and celebrations of colorful farm folk and fishermen. The show will be specially designed to evoke memories and provoke curiosity about regional history.
Programs will be held in Beltrami, Clearwater, Kittson, Mahnomen, Polk, and Roseau Counties.
