Description:

The Grand Marais Public Library is pleased to present Johnna Morrow and Steve Sklar presenting Didgeridoo: Musical Trees From Down Under, a free program being offered for ages 10-adult at the Grand Marais Public Library.

Explore the ancient Australian Aboriginal instrument and its role in cultural contexts. Johnna Morrow and Steve Sklar present songs and animal sounds such as dingos, crocodiles, wolves, and kookaburras. The Digeridoo is a product of a symbiotic relationship between the earth, trees, termites, and humans. It has a broad range of uses, including artistic, spiritual, storytelling, healing, and fun!

They’ve learned from several top Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo artists, and in 2011 founded the Worldwide Sleep Apnea-Didgeridoo Network, which serves sleep apnea patients, clinics, and care providers by connecting them with local didgeridoo instructors.

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
