GUEST POST: NICA JOINS FOR FINAL (for now) MINNESOTA DAYS

 

After a brief but sweet stint at the Mill City Farmers Market Saturday morning (including renditions of the McGarrigle Sisters, Debussy, Sinatra, Amazing Grace, etc) we hit the road and headed North to Fergus Falls. The lovely folks at Springboard For The Arts  had invited us to participate in the town’s fourth annual Kirkbride Arts & History Weekend – a weekend of events celebrating the historic Kirkbride Building , a former “asylum for the insane” that has been vacant since 2005.

We set up shop in front of the building itself, a sprawling castle-like estate perched above town. A few eager players tried the piano, including the town’s church organist who played a spooky rendition of Bringing In the Sheaves, which felt fitting against the abandoned backdrop.
