North Country Matters: A Video Journal of Ideas and Visions for our Community is Back for Another Season

This season's premiere episode of North Country Matters is scheduled for broadcast on Clarkson University's WCKN, Potsdam-Canton Time Warner Cable Channel 30, Tuesday, February 19, at 7 p.m. and will replay on Sunday, February 24, at noon and again at 7:30 p.m. This show will focus on activities of the St. Lawrence County (SLC) Arts Council.

The musical highlight of the show will be the 2007 Live Music Friday Concert: Platero y Yo. This is the story of a poet and his donkey as told via classical guitar and Spanish narration by Crane School of Music Adjunct Guitar Instructor Lynn McGrath. Live Music Fridays are sponsored by the St. Lawrence County Arts Council and What a Racquette Music and Dance. Check the SLC Arts Council Web site (www.slcartscouncil.org) for information on upcoming concerts, events, and classes.

During the fall 2007 semester, Clarkson student Jessica Hall served as an intern for the St. Lawrence County Arts Council. Hall worked with Arts Council Director Hilary Oak to create audio visual documentation of a number of Arts Council events including a grant writing workshop as well as producing the Remington Arts Festival and Artists' Studio Tour segments for this North Country Matters.

North Country Matters continues to be the only show on North Country cable systems focused entirely on local issues, featuring stories about local people, produced entirely by folks living here. There is no other show like it north of the Blue Line.
