Jack Williams in Concert - July 9

JACK WILLIAMS  -  July 9 - 7:30 PM

Arrowhead Center for the Arts  -   51 W. 5th St. Grand Marais

Tickets are general admission: $17 adults, $5 youth (18 & under). For sale in advance at (search "Arrowhead Center for the Arts"). Also for sale at the door (box office opens 6:30 PM).


Music legend Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul, & Mary) has lauded Jack Williams as “the best guitar player I’ve ever heard,” and Tom Paxton has called him “one of my all-time favorite pickers.” Williams' style has evolved from a lifetime of musical involvement ranging from beatnik trumpeter, to folk-revivalist banjo player, to country, rock, and R & B electric and steel-guitar player, to chamber music composer. He spends most of his time today touring the U.S. and playing major music festivals and venues, including The Newport Folk Festival and Chicago’s Folkstage, hosted by Rich Warren of NPR’s nationally syndicated show The Midnight Special.

Warren writes of Williams, “His artistry... is nothing short of amazing. Dazzling picking, expressive voice, unique and interesting songs. He is a showman in the best sense of the word and just wowed our audience. I think they would have followed him anywhere." Though he's sometimes referred to as a "singer-songwriter," audiences should not expect a night of quiet introspective ballads. Williams is known for his entertaining and high-energy performances.

Spectators invited to watch the Lutsen 99er action

Fri, 06/24/2016 - 3:13pm

Cook County residents and visitors will have a chance to watch some of the best mountain bike racers in the country when they compete in the Lutsen 99er on Saturday, June 25.

This will also be a chance to cheer for your friends or neighbors in one of the four races.  Riders from near and far will roll up to the starting line at Lutsen Mountains and compete in either the 19er, 39er, 69er, or 99er. 

“We have some well-known pros like Jorden Wakeley from Grayling, Michigan, and Jeff Hall from Farmington, Minnesota,” said Peter Spencer, race director. “But the majority of our participants are recreational bikers. And with our Sunday kids’ events for children 5-13, we attract hundreds of kids and their families.

“Spectators are more than welcome,” adds Spencer.  “We’d love to see them at the beginning and end of the race, and at some of the viewing spots along the way. They are also welcome to celebrate with us at Papa Charlie’s on Lutsen Mountain after an awards ceremony outside Papa Charlie’s at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 25.  Music will be provided by the Minneapolis foot-stomping band 4ontheFloor.

How popular has the mountain biking event become? Mountain bikers have voted the Lutsen 99er the best mountain bike race in Minnesota for 2016.

The 99er is run on trails, forest roads, and some county roads. Riders have 11 hours to complete the grueling ride to receive an official time.
