Did you know that Cuyuna has music, too? Lots of it! The music of Cuyuna owes it’s roots to the pioneers and immigrant miners that came together for entertainment in the early days. They brought with them the music they had enjoyed wherever they came from, and, over time, it became woven together to become part of the American fabric. American music.
A lot like klunking, right?
Join us to hear local John Pribyl play his amazing repertoire of Americana music. While there is an authorized, technical definition of “Americana”, lets just say “It’s good!”. John’s music, like the early music of the Cuyuna Range, draws from a number of unique genres, and John expresses it in a way that is flavored like the red soil of Cuyuna.
And that’s good!
A local boy that loves Cuyuna Country, John heads a number of local bands, mentors youngsters interested in music and John is the sound engineer that recorded the “Yeti Song”. John has been friends with Father Klunker for years.
John will be playing live at the Cuyuna Lakes Klunker Ride and Scrap Metal Jamboree from 4:30p to 6:00p on Saturday, September 14th, 2013. There is no fee to attend the concert, but donations are highly appreciated!
