LANESBORO, MN – The annual Art in the Park Father’s Day festival returns for its 36th year on Sunday, June 19, 2016, in Lanesboro’s Sylvan Park, with 90-plus fine art and craft booths and live music by Pushing Chain, Driftwood Bones, The Coteries, and The Homestead Act.

The focal point of Art in the Park is, of course, the art! Fine art and fine craft artist booths encircle Sylvan Park underneath canopies of shade, featuring a wide variety of artist-made work by artists from the tri-state region. There will be paintings, photography, fine jewelry, textile rugs and quilts, fish leather fashion accessories, varied fabric creations, stained glass, blown and fused glass sculptures, artworks utilizing reclaimed wood, artisan soap, ceramics, metalwork, hand-sculpted birdbaths, and whimsical yard/garden art, and more.

Lanesboro Arts is presenting four talented musical acts this year, as well as wandering midday appearances by the Minnesota Traditional Morris (MTM) dancers. Regulars at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and other summer events, Based in the Twin Cities, MTM is a men’s English folk dance team that perform regularly at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and other summer events in Minnesota. There will also be head-in-the-hole photo stand-in of Thing 1 and Thing 2 from the Lanesboro Community Theater’s upcoming production of “Seussical the Musical”.

Starting off the day at 10 a.m. is The Homestead Act, a new folk-rock and Americana project featuring Michelle Lynn and Adam Ptacek. This Decorah, Iowa, based duo have recently developed a thematic collection of original songs that blend their own unique personal experiences and sense of humor with obscure non-fictional stories, locations, and people from the Civil War and the Gilded Age of the late 1800s and early 1900s that don’t often make their way into traditional history class.

Taking the gazebo stage at 11:45 a.m. is Driftwood Bones, a charming and charismatic group of Winona natives that perform refreshingly original tunes featuring ukulele, piano, electric guitar, banjo, and dueling male-female vocals. Since forming in 2013, this six-piece of Luther undergrads has developed a piano-driven, Americana and folk rock sound with catchy and soaring indie-pop harmonies.

Performing at 1:30 p.m. is The Coteries, a female fronted South Orange, N.J.-based acoustic trio that play bluesy folk-rock and roots music steepe .....
