"Artists on Main Street" ~ Historian Tom Isern ~ "A Night of Great Jazz" ~ A Tell Tale Folklife Oral History
Tuesday, August 9, 2022 - The North Dakota Department of Commerce is inviting communities to apply for the “Artists on Main Street” program, which offers technical assistance and funding for local art projects. Each year a different community is selected. The first of the 5 planned grants went to Bowman last year. Special contributor Brandi Malarkey went to Bowman to gather interviews about the project for a feature we first aired earlier this summer. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay titled “Big History.” ~~~ Prairie Public music host Scott Prebys joins us to preview this year’s “Night of Great Jazz” ~~~ Speaking of music, we have a TellTale story from Germans-From-Russia folk singers Joe Gross of Bismarck and John Gross of Napoleon.
