Our Feb 14th concert featured Utah-based “Otter Creek”, with their traditional and original bluegrass tunes, and 53 strings on a multitude of instruments. We had 50 people brave an active snowstorm to see this talented couple.
But the weather story starts earlier. Superior was getting hit by a series of storms that kept dropping an inch or two of snow most days for a 10 day period. Our artists drove up from Salt Lake City, an 8 + hour drive in good weather…in a Prius! Not only that, but their car was packed with a guitar, a steel guitar, a mandolin, an octave mandolin, a dulcimer, 3 fiddles, and whatever personal items they needed for their journey. They arrived promptly for a 2:30 PM workshop/assembly in the Alberton schools, and then completed a drive up to Superior as the beginning of the newest batch of snow was covering the Interstate.
OK. So next up is our legendary Spring Gala, to be held at the Superior Elementary School Gym on April 10th, featuring two amazing voices accompanied by a pianist/violinist. Called “O Sole Trio”, this New York City group present their show “Bravissimo Broadway”. This is an event you cannot miss. We will have a catered meal, and tickets will be available soon. Stay posted!
