LITTLE FALLS -- Ted Fyder will be the first musician to perform in the 2001 Little Falls House Concert Series.
Fyder will start off the year with a performance Friday, Jan. 12, at Jason's Casual Dining, formerly Jerry's Supper Club of Little Falls.
The evening will start with a social at 7 p.m. with the concert to start at 7:30 p.m.
Originally from the Iron Range, Fyder now calls Lake Shore his home. He has been singing about this part of the world for the last 20 years. After working in Colorado and Alaska, he returned to Minnesota and has been sharing his talent with audiences across the state ever since.
Many of Fyder's songs reflect his view on his northern upbringing. The themes of fishing, family, campfires and friends are featured prominently in the music "vividly portraying what life in the North Star State is all about."
Fyder teamed up with musician Glen Everhart in 1989. They worked together until 1999. Fyder than went back to a long delayed teaching career, and a more relaxed musical performance schedule. His schedule now features coffeehouse concerts, resort appearances, children's shows, corporate events, benefits and the occasional campfire.
Fyder and Everhart originals "Goin' Up North," "Opening Weekend," "A Day On Island Lake" and "I Could Grow Old In Ely" continue to be favorites in his shows.
Admission will be $7 for adults and $3 for children under age 12.
Upcoming artists include Blanche Evridge, Laura MacKenzie, Paul Imholte, and Peter Ostrouschko and Dean Magraw. For more information or to receive a calendar of the 2000-2001 House Concert Series, contact the Great River Arts Association at (320) 632-0960.
This activity is made possible in part by a grant from the Five Wings Arts Program with funding from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Minnesota state Legislature.
