Duluth's Gaelynn Lea ~ Bismarck Oral History Project ~ Matt Reviews "Dr. Strange"
Friday, May 13, 2022 - Violinist Gaelynn Lea of Duluth won NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest in 2016, and more recently she was tapped to compose the music for a new production of Macbeth on Broadway starring Daniel Craig. ~~~ Bismarck has a big celebration this weekend. It’s the town’s sesquicentennial, or 150th birthday. We take the occasion to share a conversation between special contributor Brandi Malarkey and Dr. Marilyn Snyder, president of the Bismarck Historical Society. They discuss an effort to gather major oral histories, plus a project to transcribe police records that go all the way back to the early 1900s. ~~~ Matt Olien has this week’s movie review: “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”
