Regional musician and visual artist Jeanne O’Neil of East Grand Forks, MN was a recent guest on the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council (NWMAC) weekly feature, aired Tuesdays at 3:05 PM on Pioneer 90.1.
Jeanne and her husband Tom perform folk music and teach folk dancing, keeping alive traditional sounds and performances established many years ago on the Great Plains of the north.
Jeanne shared her background in music and the support that she and Tom have received from the NWMAC, through the Minnesota Cultural and Heritage Fund.
Northland graduate Steven Reynolds talks about his college days at Northland with Ron West on Pioneer 90.1, and about his long-standing communication venture known as “The Raven.”
Published four times a year – with a circulation that reaches coast to coast – “The Raven” journal features local/regional artists and events, plus stories of early northwest Minnesota settlers and pioneers, passed on from generation to generation.
A grant from the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council was instrumental in the survival and growth of his publication.
