    Journey back with author/songwriter/filmmaker Bill Jamerson, to the days of timber hoisters, powder monkeys, and muckmen. Songs about children bringing pasties to their dads, picking thimbleberries, Saturday night saunas, ski jumping, and more! Bill began collecting stories about the Upper Peninsula while researching for his PBS Film Winter Wonderland. Due to its isolation and remoteness of the U.P., many cultural traditions had been preserved. Bill met with miners, ski jumpers and other old time residents and collected their stories. He used many of these stories to create programs that are as informative as they are entertaining. This event is being hosted at the Cokato Manor. For all ages. A Legacy event.
