STAGE ACTS

Lake Superior Trivia Quiz:
Friday, Aug 24, 11 AM-Noon and 2-3 PM
Learn about Lake Superior with Andrew Slade, as he tests the audience about the lake’s history of shipping, storms, lighthouses, geology and more. Slade runs the North Shore Interpretive Center at the historic Limnology Lab building at on the Lester River, (6008 London Rd). The purpose of the North Shore Center is to educate people about how to protect the North Shore watershed and to inform the public about UMD programs: Minnesota Sea Grant, the Large Lakes Observatory, The Weber Stream Restoration Project and others. Slade is also director of the Sugarloaf Cove Interpretive Association.

Coffee Art with Angel & Andy:
Friday, Aug 24, Noon-2 PM
UMD alumni Andrew Saur (graphic design) and Angel Sarkela-Saur (marketing) paint with coffee. In fact, their coffee art has been featured on the Food Network. Their lively presentation includes finished works of art on display and they will actually paint with coffee at the fair. Their adventure with coffee art started when they planned their first art show in a Duluth coffee house and it has continued as one of their many interests since then. Both Angel and Andy draw and paint. Andy also creates wood carvings, and Angel is an accomplished photographer. See their website and movie.

Singer Songwriter Jerree Small:
Saturday, Aug 25, Noon-2 PM
Recently featured on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, Jerree Small is emerging as one of Minnesota’s hotest talents. This UMD student has two CD releases, Mobius, and Sleeping Giant. Her songs create musical snapshots of life experiences. Reviewers say her early influences, fellow Duluth native Bob Dylan and Iowa-based Greg Brown, resonate throughout her "blend of Midwestern steadiness and the wistful voice of a world traveler". See her website and a clip of her performing “To Ramona.”
