Range town thinks spring with ‘Green Envy’

For those longing for spring in this land where spring eludes us well into late April, how about this Iron Range shindig? This Saturday, March 2, an event called “Green Envy” will be held from 4-7 p.m. at the Olcott Park Greenhouse in Virginia, Minnesota. The tagline: “Be the envy of all your friends, get out of the cold, and experience the greenhouse in an entirely new way.”

Green Envy features live music from Virginia High School Orchestra Students, country rocker Mark Henderson, acoustic folk fun by Haugen & Hotchkiss, and finally Matt Ray and Those Damn Horses. Those of you who heard the Eveleth edition of the Great Northern Radio Show know what the Horses can do. Frankly, this sounds like a heckuva good show.

Matt Ray and Those Damn Horses headlined last fall’s
Great Northern Radio Show in Eveleth.

Sounds like they’ve got a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, beverages that would be OK for plants and beverages that would not be OK for plants, if you catch my drift.

Tickets are $10 with all proceeds going to the greenhouse. Folks behind the scenes of the greenhouse will be hand to talk about what’s going on, so whether you like plants, local politics or live music, there’s something for you. If you like all of those things, well, you really don’t have an excuse not to be there.

Looking for info? Call Nevada (218) 750-0389 or Lindsay (218) 749-0798.

This would be a great way to warm up your musical sensibilities for next Saturday’s Great Northern Radio Show, broadcast live from the Bagley High School auditorium on Northern Community Radio.
