Boys of America "Ameriikan poijat" Finnish Brass Band new CD Release

Dec 1 2018 11:00 am
Dec 1 2018 1:00 pm
Location: 
Content Bookstore
Ameriikan Poijat (“Boys of America")  is a unique Finnish American brass band that was founded by Paul Niemisto in 1990 in Northfield.  Their newest CD- “Juhlat – Festivals and Celebrations” releases on Dec. 1. 2018, at Content Books on Division St.   Paul Niemisto will be there to autograph between 11:00 and 1:00.
 
Paul writes "It’s been about ten years since Ameriikan Poijat has recorded a new album. Part of this is because our Finnish style brass septet has already covered a lot of our favorite music in the first four CDs (about 80 separate selections). At one time, we were thinking about doing a Christmas album, but couldn’t get excited about adding one more to a glut of seasonal recordings. What was left? The modern stuff!

Local native animals are subjects of an exhibit of fabric art by Northfield artist Toni Easterson at River Bend Nature Center in Faribault. Easterson’s fourteen portraits reveal her close connections to the animals she sees from her window - a mink, an egret, a turtle, a rabbit, a bluebird, among others. She uses fabric pieces given to her by friends and transformes them into remarkable creatures. An egret’s plume, for example, was part of a lace wedding gown.
