Papa Crow to perform Wednesday
MARQUETTE — Papa Crow, local musician, will be back at the Peter White Public Library for a free, family oriented, concert in the community room at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Papa Crow’s CD “Things That Roar” has been awarded a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor, and he has played several concerts at the library in the past. Papa Crow’s engaging style, obvious love of music and skill as an entertainer makes this a concert not to be missed.
As a special bonus, this year he will be holding three short ukulele workshops after the concert. These workshops are for ages 5 and up, and must be registered for beforehand by calling 906-226-4323. Each workshop will be followed by a band jam session. The Funky Robots start at 3:10 p.m., the Flying Pancakes at 3:20, and the Terrible Butterflies at 3:30.

Seeking Aura Jamboree volunteers
AURA — Volunteers are being recruited to help with this summer’s 41st annual Aura Jamboree, July 14-15.
Assistance is needed at the concession stand, and with several other positions. Shifts are generally just two hours long, and volunteers receive free admission to the two-day music event.
The Aura Jamboree will be held at the historic Aura Community Hall in Baraga County. It features acoustic musicians from across the region, who perform in turns on the indoor stage, and in informal groups on the shaded grounds outside. Money raised helps to maintain the hall, and also supports scholarships for local students pursuing careers in the arts.
To volunteer, please call Roger or Roxanne Wiik at 906-524-4694.
