Arna Rennan Performance

Her Performance of “Treasures Left Behind”

Featuring Ballads from the Middle Ages, Arna brings to life the sound and sentiment of Nordic people as they lived hundreds of years ago. She sets the scene by telling the story of the song first.  They are from the fantastic world of spells cast, justice served, powerful kings, underground elves, love and longing. Arna sings, plays the “langeleik” a northern European dulcimer and the overtone flute. She attaches dancing figures to her fingers with string as a grandmother would have entertained her children. These are beautiful and captivating stories and songs for the young and old.

The Fosston Community Library Arts Association will be sponsoring a presentation by Eric Bergeson on April 13 at 7:00 pm at the Fosston Library Arts Theater. 

Eric Bergeson is an author and speaker from Fertile, MN. His sixth book, “A Treasury of Old Souls”, is a collection of stories about elderly people who befriended him as he grew up on the family nursery in rural Fertile. The lessons he learned from them stuck with Eric ever since. The heroism and humor of his elderly friends as they moved from full independence to requiring nursing home care is the central theme of “Treasury.” Eric will share stories of his Great Aunt Olive, who lived to 103 years of age, and other elderly folks who have enriched his life.
