Frank Gillis Blues, Jazz & Boogie Show October 24-25

Tue, 10/21/2014 - 10:44am

Many years ago the old church building that now houses the Betsy Bowen Studio was the scene of some fabulous concerts with Frank Gillis and the Doc Evans Dixieland Band. Frank’s son Chris is reviving the tradition with two nights of performances that are a reunion of sorts for the talented musicians taking part.

Chris Gillis invites everyone to the Frank Gillis Blues, Jazz & Boogie Show at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, October 24-25 at What’s Upstairs at Betsy Bowen Studio

Reached by phone at home in St. Paul, Gillis said the concert has been dubbed the Fall 2014 Festival Reunion, a tongue-in-cheek reference to the concerts his father conducted during Fisherman’s Picnic from 1957 until 1999. Chris said his dad and Grand Marais Art Colony founder Bernie Quick worked together to bring all sorts of music to Grand Marais, from jazz to classical. Early performances were in the high school gym.

The concert will reunite brothers Bob and Tom Andrews who played base and drum respectively with Frank, and later Chris. It is a reunion for the brothers as well, as they are both very busy with their musical careers. Bob Andrews plays with The Medicine Show and Tom Andrews drums with the Barbary Coast Jazz Band, spending most of the winter in Florida. They have joined forces very little since they performed in the 1960s-‘70s with Frank Gillis in the Bill Price & the New Yorkers.

The concert at What’s Upstairs will feature some of Frank Gillis’s favorite tunes such as Waltz for Debbie.

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 2:43pm

The Minneapolis-based performance company of Emily Johnson and Catalyst will perform the  "The Thank-You Bar" at Grand Marais’ Arrowhead Center for the Arts on Oct 24 and 25, 2014, with four limited-capacity shows.

Friday Oct 24 9:30pm

Saturday Oct 25 2pm (matinee)

Saturday Oct 25 7pm

**BLACKFISH Concert Sat Oct 25 9pm (45 mins)

Emily Johnson/Catalyst bring their Bessie Award – winning performance installation, The Thank-you Bar to Grand Marais’ Arrowhead Center For The Arts Oct 24-25, 2014 as part of the fall season for the Grand Marais Playhouse. The Thank-you Bar first premiered in 2009 in Anchorage, Alaska, and has toured across the USA to wide acclaim, propelling choreographer Emily Johnson into the national and international spotlight as a visionary contemporary dance maker.  In 2014, Emily Johnson / Catalyst received a MN State Arts Board “Arts Touring” Grant to bring a series of performances and workshops to Grand Marais in 2014 -15.

THE THANK-YOU BAR is an intimate performance experience intended to engage many levels of perception and expression. Through a sophisticated concept of theatrical space, unique and powerfully minimalist dancing, and a multi-layered original soundscore, Johnson’s illusory – yet partly true – stories ride the confluence of truth and myth. Appropriate for ages 6 and up.  Seating limited to 20 per performance.

Banadad Trail Association trail cleanup scheduled for October 25

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 1:31pm

The Bandadad Trail Association invites you to help get the Banadad Ski Trail ready for winter by helping with clearing and trimming low-hanging tree branches starting at the Banadad’s eastern trailhead on Saturday, Oct. 25.

According to several Trail Association members who hiked the first mile of the Banadad from the eastern trailhead, they came across nine large downed trees blocking the trail including a 10- to 12-inch aspen in a clump with several other trees it brought down; on either side of this clump of trees were two more large downed aspen. This section of the Banadad is within the BWCA where all maintenance must be done using hand tools.

“If what we experienced on the eastern end of the trail holds for the rest of the Banadad,” stated Ted Young, maintenance administrator, “we have got a real job ahead of us. Please join us; we really need your help!”

Volunteers meet for the Trail Work Day at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 26 at Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B, 11 Poplar Creek Drive (just off the Lima Grade) Gunflint Trail. Hand tools and lunches will be provided to all volunteers. Wear sturdy clothing and boots. 

After the work session volunteers and friends of the Banadad are invited to return to Heston’s Lodge, 579 S. Gunflint Road for the Banadad Trail Association’s fifth annual meeting followed by a pizza dinner cooked in Heston’s wood fired-outdoor oven and social hour. Festivities at Heston’s begin at 6 p.m.; RSVP at 218-388-2243.

For more information on the Trail Work Day and/or the Banadad Trail Association’s annual meeting and dinner, call 218-388-4487.
