Join us for Sounds of the Driftless, a special after hours event at Driftless Market. The evening will be full of music and spoken lyrical beauty, each of the three acts exploring this unique area of the country we call home.
Curt Meine, featured guest and co-editor of the The Driftless Reader, will read aloud from this newly published, acclaimed anthology. The Driftless Reader collects original source material from early travelers to the Driftless Region. Meine will be around afterwards to sign copies, available through Driftless Market. Check out the The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s stunning review to learn more.
John Peterson, assistant professor of biology at UW-Platteville, isn’t just your average professor. He’ll bring his smooth voice and favorite stringed instrument to the middle act of the evening. His folksy, original music can be found at http://johnpeterson.bandcamp.com/
Evan Larson, an associate professor of geography at UW-Platteville, will open the evening by reading a selection inspired by his work and passion for local nature. You can read his recent article, What is Wildness, in the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine
This is a free event, open to ages 12+. Driftless will provide hors d'oeuvres and sparkling non-alcoholic drinks. For those interested in continuing socializing after the event, folks can head over to the new 2nd & Main Coffeehouse and Pub just down the street.
Sounds of the Driftless is from 7-9pm, on Friday, December 1st. Don’t be late! You’ll want to make sure you take your seat before the performance begins.
