Saturday Jan 31 Round the Ice Hole " A LIVE Ice Fishing Talk Show"
John and Corrie will host a talk show as part of the 2009 Art Shanty Projects http://artshantyprojects.org. We will be fishing, talking, and singing a few songs.
Seating is quite limited - the shanty seats about a dozen people and hundreds of people will be out on the lake that day. We assume audience members will come and go as they please. 20 other shanties have other activities planned all afternoon.
1:00 pm David Pittman will discuss his exciting life as Art Shanty Projects coordinator, radio station operator, and shanty dweller.
2:00 pm Jason Overby will appear with at least one of the four bands he plays in.
3:00 Award-winning novelist Scott Muskin talks about his new book.
4:00 Jamie Siverson has better ice fishing stories than we do.
5:00 Foxxy Tann will wrap up the day with her Wham Bam Thank You Ma'ams
