A Piano Dedication Concert
Friday, February 2 @ 7:30pm
Every year on the second day of February the groundhog takes center stage. One question burns in the minds of the few and proud here in the temperate climates of northern North America: will he see his shadow?
To properly celebrate the inevitability of this event, the shadow sighting, and a recently gifted Baldwin piano, the Cultural Center in New York Mills presents Six More Weeks. This performance is free to attend and starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, February 2.
The show features local reporter Eric Bervig’s five-piece band, Chasing Clarence, with a unique brand of folk rock harmonies, underpinned by bassist Jesse Haugen of Ottertail. The evening, which highlights the band and a few solo piano selections, also includes a short-story told by award winning storyteller, Steve Maanum of Park Rapids. This piano dedication performance incorporates the work of long time musician Ron Bervig from Halstad, Minnesota.
The concert directly follows the gallery reception for Everyday Otter Tail County.
