Grand Marais musician Barbara Jean, who recently moved to Minneapolis, gave the CCVB a shout-out in an interview with the City Pages Gimme Noise blog:
Where I’ve been living in Grand Marais, things have really taken off on a local level the last several years. The Cook County Visitors Bureau made a decision to invest in the local music scene by using tourism tax dollars to help pay musicians to play at resorts, restaurants and pubs along the North Shore. Because of that kind of support musicians, myself included, really have had a lot of opportunity to get out and play.
Thanks, Barbara Jean!
