KTWH's Cabin Fever Reliever returns


Whether music, dance or storytelling, winter weary residents of Two Harbors should find something to love at Two Harbors Community Radio KTWH-LP's fourth annual Cabin Fever Reliever at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 4, in the Two Harbors High School auditorium.

The 2018 Cabin Fever Reliever will showcase music, tap dancing, storytelling, poetry and its popular radio theater. A sampling of this year's line-up includes musicians Kyle Ollah and Dave Slatter; Brenda Moe from Sterling Dance; youth performers showcasing the "Suicide Prevention Song;" storyteller Shane Dickey; poet Micky McGilligan; piano from the Two Harbors Piano

Studio; and the return of KTWH's one-of-a-kind house band: the Two Harbors Ukulele Group (THUG).

"I think it's fair to say that we tried have a lot of variety in our lineup," KTWH board chair Leo Babeu said. "Whether it's music or non-musical, we tried to have a variety of genres as well as storytelling and dance."

This year, the THHS lobby will open at 2 p.m. for children's activities such as face painting, story time and an opportunity for kids and adults to record a legal radio identification for broadcast. THUG will open the show at 2:40 p.m. with a 20 minute set before the formal performance begins.

Cedar Coffee Co. will sell gourmet coffee and treats before the show and at intermission. Free desserts and cider will be available as well. A bake sale featuring gourmet breads and homemade jams will be available for sale after the show.

Tickets are currently on sale from 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the KTWH studio in the Harbors Landing Building, 629 Seventh Ave., or at Cedar Coffee Co., 1130 11th Street. Tickets for adults are $8 in advance and $10 at the door, $5 for seniors, $3 kids under 5 and $25 for a family.

"We think people should come out to a great time supporting local musicians and artists," Babeu said. "We hope they will appreciate the wide range of amazing local talent."

KTWH is a nonprofit radio station providing low-power, listener-supported radio with the mission of building community in the greater Two Harbors area through intergenerational grassroots participation.

"We want to be a forum for community voices to be heard, relevant news about the community and a venue for local arts and great music and entertainment," Babeu said.
