Last week before he headed out into the BWCAW, Jerry Vandiver gave a concert here at Tuscarora. Maybe you haven't heard of Jerry? Neither had I. I just knew he was a friend of Old Scout...and I figured he was a friendly bunkhouse guest with a guitar, and isn't that nice that he's going to play for us and for the guests and the staff? There are so many things to attend to---that I didn't really pay attention until I went in to hear him sing.
Wow! He was fabulous! Very entertaining, talented, engaging. Great songs--I even recognized some of them---it was just a fun evening. Jerry's songs have been recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys ,Tim McGraw, Lonestar....... he was a great musician, a like-able guy, and I feel like we have a new friend. Yesterday some of our guests came out of the woods and said "some guy from Nashville portaged our canoe---he said to say 'hello."
If you're in Grand Marais on Saturday Evening (Aug 21) at 7pm at the Art Colony, I highly recommend Jerry's concert. He's fabulous.
