Headwaters Music & Arts celebrates the winter season with a concert and silent auction 4-6 pm Sunday, December 8 at 519 Minnesota Ave NW in Bemidji. The event highlights artists featured on the 2018 album, Northwoods Winter: Christmas in Bemidji Vol. III, as well as contributors to our 2016 CD. Both were recorded at Supple Studios in Bemidji. CDs and digital downloads will be available to purchase.
The event will feature live music performed by regional musicians, Sonny Johnson, Annalise Aakhus, Doyle Turner, Lance Benson and Kari Grace, and a silent auction of reimagined instruments. Encore: Instruments Reimagined is a group exhibit and silent auction of transformed, unusable, musical instruments turned into surprising and innovative works of art. Each piece is a unique work of art showcasing the talent of the local artist who donated their time to rework it. Contributing artists include Kathy Gustafson, Terry Honstead, Amanda Kastner, Diamond Knispel, Kim Kovacic, Marti Lundin, Sarah Peterson, and Mary Therese.
Along with great music and art attendees can also look forward to hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and a cash bar courtesy of Brigid’s Pub. Proceeds from the event will go towards Headwaters Music & Arts renovation projects while album sales support Headwaters Music & Arts Scholarship Fund, which is dedicated to giving more young musicians the opportunity to learn and love music. Advance tickets are $10, $15 at the door.
