2015 First Ever – Twilight Tour & Farm To Table Dinner

September 13, 2015 at Norskedalen Nature and Heritage Center

Led by guides with lantern light, visitors will step back in time and meet live historical characters of the area’s past.

Norskedalen’s history includes many colorful and memorable people who helped to shape the Coon Valley area of La Crosse and Vernon counties.  Settled primarily by Norwegian immigrants, Norskedalen’s existence is owed to people who had the foresight to preserve original log buildings, immigrant artifacts, oral histories, protect valuable natural resources in the valley, and create a place of education and understanding of the past and the future.  Norskedalen’s mission is to not only preserve the nature and cultural heritage of the region, but also to interpret it, and this is the purpose of the “Twilight Tour.”

Lou Shield’s music is rooted in pre and post war 20th century America with a 21st century perspective. He has a deep appreciation for Delta Blues, Country Blues, early Country and beyond. Shields continues that tradition with respect in the 21st century and transcends any specific genre.               www.loushieldsart.com
