Juneau’s Buddy Tabor and Skagway’s Barb Kalen sang, strummed and put together musical events during their many years in the region.
Both were celebrated at the Alaska Folk Festival, a seven-day series of concerts held last week in the Capital City. Here’s a taste of the sound of their tributes.
- The cause of a Hoonah car crash that killed one is still unknown.
- An ambitious plan to develop agricultural land west of Nenana is on hold until the town can find another $5 million to complete work build a bridge across the Nenana River.
- Quintillion will begin work laying subsea fiber optic cable off Nome’s coast the first week of July.
- It was a landmark event for Buddhists from the state and around the world.
