Hi Ladies and Gentlemen,
Over the weekend I had the incredible opportunity of a Whitewater Rafting Experience near the Duluth area, with some friends. Which at times was very scary when our raft was over come with water from the rapids. We packed allot of Adventure and Life Experience into those two days.
On Sunday, we had the beautiful experience of listening to a concert in a park in Duluth by the Gifted and Talented Michael Monroe. After the concert I had the opportunity to spend some time talking with Michael and his wife. Though he is a, 'celebrity' in the Music and TV world, within the US and Internationally, he and his wife remain, 'very down to earth' and friendly. His success has not gone to his head. They live in a solar powered log home in Grand Marais, MN. His recording studio is within their home. His wife shared with me that the logs that construct their home, provide a beautiful acoustic music studio.
We will meet for Happy Hour and appetizers on the patio of Enjoy. They have many drink and appetizer specials. We will then walk across the street to Kelley Park and take in an amazing, free concert by Michael. Bring a bottle of water, bug spray and a blanket or lawn chair for your comfort. We will move to the park area between 5:15 -5:30 pm to provide for a good seating area. We will continue to socialize until the concert begins, at 6:00 p.m.
"Michael performs his original acoustic folk, reggae and jazz, blending rich vocals, bamboo/crystal flutes together on Seaton Guitars made on the Gunflint trail of 200 year old wood from the bottom of Lake Superior. His music is aired on PBS and internationally on Jim Brandenburg's 'Chased by the Light' documentary for which he received several national awards. Monroe received a regional Emmy for his documentary theme 'Soaring On Mended Wings."
After the concert if you wish to purchase one of his many CD's he will autograph it for you, as the one I purchased. You will be able to speak both with him and his wife and ask questions. They both are very open. He has been in the music industry for over four decades.
