Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, the many in attendance from not only Lake of the Woods County but many from surrounding communities, will experience the art of Bluegrass music that is growing in popularity in our region. The Baudette Depot has the opportunity in events such as this to emphasize the importance of the performing arts and increasing access to them by bringing new talents (Porcupine Creek) as well as more experienced talent (The High 48's) that have been on the scene for many years. Methods we used last year produced the best results and we plan on using it again this year. We have 2 volunteers equipped with a clipboard and survey forms that involve a 1 on 1 interview: 1. If this is the 1st time attending an event at the depot. 2. How they heard about this event. 3. If Bluegrass music and the different instruments new to them. 4. Rate their overall experience of the event 1-5. 5. If they would like more info on upcoming events from the depot and region arts and events offered.
