Judging by the activity level, spring has already sprung in the South Perry neighborhood. In short order, there's an art walk scheduled for St. Patrick's Day, March 17. The plan is for this to be the first “Third Thursday” art walk on South Perry.
A group is gathering to put together a couple of concerts in Grant Park this summer - more details forthcoming.
And on Monday, 2/28, the Perry Street Fair committee is meeting at the Perry Street Cafe at 4 p.m. - please join this meeting. The annual fair and parade needs as many volunteers as we can stuff into the Perry Street Cafe.
Finally - don't forget to stop by the South Perry Farmers Market. The snow shouldn't discourage you, the market is cozy indoors just next to the Buddhist Temple. Open from 3-6 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

On Friday evening at Liberty Park United Methodist Church, a small group spent an hour letting our souls be fed by the music of John Nilsen. Pieces ranged from original adaptations of traditional hymns to boogie-woogie. John’s original songs are often inspired by family – he wrote “Dakota Rose” one of his most popular songs, for his grandfather. “Train 18” is a delightful jazz number written for his wife. And John took all of us on a ride to freedom with “Hot Air Balloon.” John’s music was enhanced by the great accoustics of the historic Liberty Park United Methodist Church sanctuary. Look for more concerts at the church in the future.

The artist is John Nilsen, musician and composer from Portland Oregon. He will be playing a piano concert called “Places I Go” featuring his own music weaving folk, jazz and classical styles. He will also include some of traditional hymn arrangements and stories of his life, family and faith. The church is located at 1526 East 11th Avenue, just off Perry Street.
