Wednesday, May 27, 2015 The Nugget Newspaper, Sisters, Oregon Sisters Folk Festival celebrates youth success On Friday, May 29, the stu- dents of the Sisters Americana Project, the educational out- reach program of Sisters Folk Festival (SFF), are releasing its 12th full-length record, all songs written and recorded by students of Sisters High School. The concert will be held at 7 p.m. at The Belfry. The album was engineered by Brent Alan, with support from Sisters High School senior Dakota Wagner. Dakota coordinated the Tuesday- evening recording sessions, mostly solo guitar and vocals. She is also creating the cover artwork, and has illustrations of each student at the record- ing sessions, which she plans to use in the graphic design. “Each year an advanced student in the program takes on the responsibility of coor- dinating the sessions and releasing the record,” said Brad Tisdel, creative director of Sisters Folk Festival and co-founder of the Americana Project. “Besides being a songwriter and musician on the recording, Dakota is also an accomplished visual artist who can conceive of the entire project and see it to comple- tion. The sketches will be a nice complement to the record- ing, bringing the performing arts and visual arts together to represent a lot of hard work by all of the students.” This year’s Americana Project CD has been under- written by the Dottie and Eli Ashley Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation. Tickets to the CD release con- cert are $15 for adults ($20 at the door) or $10 for youth 18 and under (advance or at the door). The ticket price includes a CD. Tickets can be purchased at www.sistersfolk festival.org/tickets or by call- ing the festival office. On Tuesday, June 9, the Americana Luthier Program is celebrating the completion of 35 guitars and nine hand- made ukuleles. The show- case will be held at 6 p.m. at The Belfry and is free to the public. The luthier program, which has been running for the past eight years at Sisters High School, teaches students the age-old craft of building musical instruments. The process takes the stu- dents 24 weeks, starting their instruments in the fall and fin- ishing them in the spring. The program is led by Tony Cosby, the engineering/woodwork- ing instructor at Sisters High School, and Bill MacDonald of Kona Breeze Ukuleles. It is a collaboration between SFF, Sisters School District, and Breedlove Guitars, and funded primarily through SFF.

Between all the partners, including Jayson Bowerman, who originally helped start the program and continues to volunteer his time and donate materials, Sisters Folk Festival, all the volunteers, it is the perfect place to make it happen. The instruments get better every year and we are grateful for the opportunity,” said instructor Tony Cosby. On June 9, the students will present their completed instruments, and there will be a short concert by young art- ists in the Americana Project performing on the instruments built by fellow students.

To be redeemable for 5¢ the bottle or can must be printed with the 5¢ OR mark. Most carbonated bever- ages including beer and the small plastic water bottles sold in Oregon carry that mark. Milk jugs, one- or five-gallon water jugs, wine bottles and coffee drinks do not. Furry Friends Foundation helps families in Sisters with a pet food bank and sponsors spay and neuter surgeries.
