Main Street … Upcoming shows

Thursday, November 27 – On this special Thanksgiving edition of Main Street, we celebrate the region’s heritage. We start with rich musical traditions of the Germans from Russia with “We Always had to Sing: German-Russian Music in the Old Days.” It’s collaboration between Prairie Public and the Germans from Russia Heritage Collection at NDSU. We follow that up with the medical folklore of the prairie from the book Sundogs and Sunflowers: Folklore and Folk Art of the Northern Great Plains, compiled and edited by Dr. Timothy Kloberdanz and Troyd Geist. Dr. Kloberdanz, formerly of NDSU, is a retired professor of anthropology and sociology. Geist is the North Dakota State Folklorist, working for the North Dakota Humanities Council.
