Our last show of 2018 is tonight!! Proud to have John Hanson here as featured performer. He comes from the college of St John's in Collegeville, MN. Some of you may remember him sharing songs last summer in a "song pull". John has been a Benedictine Monk since 1984, but he has been doing music his whole life, beginning with playing the piano at age 4. In the mid 60's a "hippy" cousin got him interested in guitar. Then in 1968 he was an altar server singing in Latin one day, and the next day a nun had cast off her veil and was teaching him to play folk music in church. In college he became acquainted with "Delta Blues" and also began studying Classical repertoire. About 10 years ago a close friend encouraged him to take up the steel string guitar and learning to play with a pick. He was a member of a string trio known as "Collegeville Station". John has maintained a "circle of Song" (an informal weekly gathering of musicians) in central Stearns County for about 8 years. His performance will bring you a sense of peace. Hope you will give a listen. We start the evening with a meet and greet at 6:30 followed by a concert starting around 7. We then partake of snacks and visiting which is followed by a "song pull"!! So if you are inclined, bring a song or story to share with the group. This is a free concert, but we recommend a $10.00 donation per person which goes directly to the performer. It is all held at 37021 County Highway 35 Waubun, MN 56589-9336. GPS is sometimes not the best so call and we can give directions. 480.248.5918 is my cell and cabin is 218.734.2215. A RSVP is great if you can, but not required!!
