John Perkins


Join us for a great musical performance by John Perkins as he celebrates the life and people of the Northwoods of Minnesota. He will be joined by his wife Sandy and Effie's own Jerry Hagen.

John's music is about our Northwoods, his beloved Sand Lake, and a little bit of the Smoky Mountains thrown in for good measure. He writes and sings about a long-ago time, a simpler time, and a very difficult time. His songs are about the tough people who settled this wild woodsy, swampy area, about majestic trees, magnificent Showy Lady's-slippers, lakes, and of course mosquitoes...

Most of all, John sings about the people: Native Americans, loggers, farmers, and ladies of the evening are all woven into his songs.

All proceeds from this concert go to support the Edge Center.

$10 for adults, $5 for children 12 & under.
Available at the door.


Listen to John here!
