The MonDak Heritage Center and Northeastern Arts Network present HarvestFest on Friday, November 8 at 7:00 p.m. at the MonDak, 120 3rd Ave SE, Sidney! Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Featuring live music by Dennis Stroughmatt et l’Esprit Creole, a selection of seasonal beers, German brats, and other refreshments. Fingers and bow flying, Dennis Stroughmatt takes listeners on a musical odyssey not so different from his own musical journeys into Upper Louisiana Creole Culture. Taught to play fiddle by local Creole fiddlers Roy Boyer and Charlie Pashia in the tradition of their fathers, Dennis gradually became an adopted son of the French Midwest Creoles living along the Mississippi River near St Louis. A vibrant blend of Celtic, Canadian and Old Time sounds, this music bridges the gap between contemporary Canadian and Louisiana Cajun styles. Preserved by families in the Ozark foothills, the music remains largely intact and true to the traditions that have been passed down for over three centuries.
Cost: $50/person or $40 for MDHC Members. Must be 21 or older to attend.
