Looking for an opportunity to leave the house? Two Harbors Community Radio KTWH has you covered.
The nonprofit will host its Fifth Annual Cabin Fever Reliever music and entertainment extravaganza at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 24, at the Two Harbors High School Auditorium.
"We've been highlighting local talent for five years now," said Julie Luchsinger, event director for Two Harbors Community Radio. "We have performers of all ages to create a family friendly fun atmosphere."
The youngest performer will be 11-year-old pianist Eddie Ojard, returning for the second year. For children not performing, there will be activities such as face painting and a drum circle prior to the beginning of the show at 3 p.m.
The show will also feature THHS students Kelli Scoggin and A.J. Lindgren. High school students from the "High School Show" will also staff a booth where attendees can record a legal ID for the station.
"Kind of like what you hear at the top of the hour where you'll say something like, 'This is Julie from KTWH,' and then you can say something fun," Luchsinger said. "People can record these IDs that we'll play on the radio and they can get a feel for what it's like in radio."
The featured guest performer this year will be Red House Records recording artist Charlie Parr, a blues and folk musician hailing from Duluth, who will play an extended set.
"He's doing this on a volunteer basis. He came in the studio with us last week and did an interview and hung out and played music. He's just the nicest guy," Luchsinger said.
Another featured performer will be storyteller Shane Dickey.
The show will be hosted by the McCullough Brothers, Hunter and Colton, who also play in the Northwoods Band. The house band, Two Harbors Ukulele Group, will start the show at 2:30 p.m and lead the grand finale, where all the acts will be invited back up to perform a song as a group.
"There's something for everyone," Luchsinger said.
The Cedar Coffee Co. will be selling gourmet coffee and treats before the show and during intermission. Free desserts and cider will be available as well. A selection of baked items featuring gourmet bread will be available for purchase, as will a collection of donated art work and gift certificates.
Tickets are $12 for adults; $10 in advance; $7 for students and seniors; $3 for kids under age 5; and $25 for family. Tickets are available at the door, as well as at KTWH studios Tuesday to Friday from 1-5 p.m. and at Cedar Coffee Co. and Mocha Moose Cafe.
