Minnesota State Arts Board Legacy Amendment
Lauren Pelon Concert Series - March & April 2014
Internationally acclaimed musician Lauren Pelon will appear in a series of concerts in Bemidji, Brainerd, Longville, Park Rapids, Pequot Lakes and Wadena. Pelon will perform on approximately twenty ancient and modern wind, string and free-reed instruments, and voice.

Pelon plays an astonishing array of instruments. Among the instruments she will be using are Native American flute, concertina, pennywhistle, ocarina, eagle bone flute, guitar, recorder and psalmodikon, all prominent in the history of Midwest culture. Other instruments (guitar-lute, archlute, bowed psaltery, lyre, hurdy-gurdy, gemshorns, cornamuse, krummhorn, schreierpfeife, shawm, electric wind instrument and pedalboard) will be used to tell a story or illustrate an idea.

Lauren Pelon has performed throughout the U.S. and in China, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Russia, Kazakhstan, Australia, and New Zealand. She is noted for her versatile use of a diverse array of instruments, but Pelon has also won recognition for her lovely soprano voice, Pelon was the recipient of the 2001 "Artist of the Year" award from The Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council. More recently, she received a 2010 Artist Initiative Award and 2014 Arts Tour Minnesota Grant Award from the Minnesota State Arts Board.

These performances are presented by Kitchigami Regional Library System and made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund and an Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, Library Legacy grant from KRLS.
