The Lowest Pair to debut in Nisswa March 27
NISSWA – The Lowest Pair duo will make its debut on the Grassroots Concerts stage at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 27 at the Live Well Nightclub and Coffee Bar at Nisswa.
The Lowest Pair is a quirky, oldtime, roots-influenced duet, featuring the high lonesome harmonies of banjo pickin’ songsters Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee.
They perform both traditional and original music, often nestling in somewhere between. Road warriors with a city-folk front and a back-porch sentiment, Winter and Lee pair their “two-banjo approach with an earnest, earthy songcraft.” -American Songwriter
Winter, from Arkansas, has settled in the lush Eden green of Olympia, Wash. She sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of the tour van and spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Her voice is beautifully unique and bold, and her songs are thoughtfully poetic and rooted deep within her diverse experiences.
Crosslake students learn personal empowerment, safety
Students at Crosslake Community School are learning how to avoid or escape violence or harm in their daily lives through the radKIDS program, a not-for-profit educational program.
Kate and Mike Davis are heading up the effort with help from the Crosslake Police Department. The Dru Sjodin Foundation paid for Kate, a Crosslake Community School music teacher, and Mike, a Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Deputy, to attend a radKIDS training so they could pass the knowledge along to first through fourth graders.
The kids attend 8-10 sessions that are held during their normal gym and music periods and learn things like fire safety, Internet safety, water safety, bullying, self defense, and escape routes.
