Meander Weekend will launch new work by local poet Lauren K. Carlson

On Saturday, October 6, Dawson-Boyd Arts Association presents the premiere of a new work during Meander weekend at 7:30pm at Memorial Auditorium in Dawson: A Life on the Prairie: Poem, Story & Song from Lac qui Parle.

Poet and writer Lauren K. Carlson, in collaboration with regional and local musicians, combines her experiences as a writer in a performed reading featuring art song and musical accompaniment. Themes of Carlson’s work include celebrating the natural world while recognizing the challenges of life and work in a rural setting.

Collaborators for this production include composer Andy Stermer, formerly of Montevideo; pianist Brandon Hurley and bassist Allysa Larson, and mezzo-soprano Heidi Felton, all residents of the Prairie Waters region.
