It's the first Friday of the month and that means we check in with the arts scenes across the listening area.

The Ely Folk School builds community  by providing learning experiences that celebrate the wilderness, heritage, art, history, culture and craft of the people of northern Minnesota.  We check in with Molly Olson from the Ely Folk School on the first Friday of each month and she tips us off on the upcoming events.
