KUMD Album Review: The Shacks

Nov 30, 2016

The Shacks | The Shacks EP

Shannon Wise and Max Shrager walked into the studio in Queens, New York, on a whim one day in 2014 and left under a new name, The Shacks. The duo holds its own with Shrager’s musical skills that have been recognized since the tender age of 14 and Wise’s feathery voice to form their self-titled release, The Shacks EP.

Duluth is famous for its hiking and skiing trails, but the Duluth Area Horse Trail Alliance is trying to get the word out about its opportunities for horseback riding.

Only two things stand in their way at the moment: the repairs needed to the Ely Peak Loop on the Magney-Snively Trail ... and the gentle tendency of saddle clubs toward disorganization.

More information about their December event can be found here:

Low-income Duluthians took center stage at a unique candidate forum in October.  They shared their experiences and struggles with candidates for state and county offices and then asked the candidates - pointedly - for specific commitments and actions on several critical policy measures.

We'll be bringing you their stories and the reactions of the candidates to their requests in the weeks to come.

Here, Chelsey Shykes shared her story of trying to find dental care while a college student on medical assistance.

Duluth Fiber Handcrafters Guild

The Duluth Fiber Handcrafter's Guild has already taken over a little corner of the Duluth Art Institute; their Fiber Studio is one of the nice perks the DAI makes available to artists in the area.  But Saturday's blow out will really give folks a sense of what they do.  And you might even get a notion to try your hand at it.

AICHO

We've learned in recent years that a variety of social and personal ills can be addressed by a couple of strategies: first, meet people where they are (and not where we think they should be) and second, get them into stable housing. 

AICHO (American Indian Community Housing Organization) has been handling the first two since 1993.  But it's only recently that they've added a third ingredient to the mix and it's having a profound impact: art.
