Jim Miller, Annie Humphrey among April 7 Great Northern Radio Show acts

While Two Many Banjos is doing a lot of heavy lifting in this Saturday’s Great Northern Radio Show at the historic Chief Theatre in downtown Bemidji, they aren’t the only A-list talent.

We’re excited to welcome Bemidji area singer/songwriter Jim Miller to the show for a feature set. Jim is an experienced and downright beloved fixture in north central Minnesota music circles. After suffering a stroke a couple years ago he is triumphing in his recovery and we celebrate that in a show we’re titling “A New Hope in the Headwaters.”

The show also features well-known Deer River Ojibwe singer/songwriter Annie Humphrey. Here she is with one of her songs, Spirit Horses:

Nate King, a local Ojibwe hand drummer and singer, is preparing a very stirring show opener for us. We’ll also be enlisting the services of The Pinetones, an a capella quartet who will be performing songs and doing some specialized sketch music as well.

Later I’ll introduce you to several of the young singer/songwriters that we’re featuring in the show.

Call 218-326-1234 to reserve your free ticket. Tickets at the door will be first come/first served. The show starts at 5 p.m. Saturday and we ask that everyone be in their seats by 4:30. You can listen live at 91.7 KAXE in northeastern Minnesota, the new 90.5 KBXE in Bemidji and north central Minnesota, 105.3 Brainerd and streaming live at www.kaxe.org, where next week you’ll be able to access the podcast. Soon after the show will be offered to independent public radio stations around Minnesota and beyond.

Tell your local public radio station you want to hear the Great Northern Radio Show! Because we are funded in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund the show is offered at no cost.
