A new Alaska Exhibit is opening September 15th, the product of a lot of construction you may have noticed in recent months at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center.  

Our guest on Morning Line, Curator of Alaska History and Culture Aaron Leggett says that the Alaska Exhibition has been the same since 1986, "It's been fun to reimagine that space and exhibition... although it's in a chronological sequence, it's also thematic."  Leggett says the new displays pose the question, "How have Alaska's peoples adapted to the landscape and it's resources?"

As Heard on Morning Line: The Ballroom Thieves

Our guests today on Morning Line were a musical trio called The Ballroom Thieves.  

The group is playing at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts on Sept. 22nd, this coming Friday at 7:30 - but here's a twist - first, they are touring local schools, inspiring students and also picking up local High School symphonic talent.  That's right, some lucky band students will get a chance to play with a nationally touring music group.  

When you're out there playing gigs and helping the Alaska Music scene, you're gonna get your hands dirty. The Dirty Hands have supported musicians, venues, festivals and Alaskan audiences for many years. They're off to explore new landscapes and locations but will reunite in Alaska for more shows in the future. Born in Girdwood, the band is a multi­-genre, blues centric, quintet. The band members seek to broaden the dynamic and depth of their music, inspired from all corners of the United States, covering a breadth of influence steeped in blues, jazz, and rock. 

The Cheapest Key

After a busy summer, the festival season is winding down as we spotlight the Fish Creek Festival September 9, 2017 here in Anchorage featuring The Cheapest Key! The band has been together for about a year and have played only 'occasionally' on Anchorage stages.  We expect more attention will be coming their way after a studio recording is made which will no doubt get plenty of air-time on the radio. Thanks for the live music and we'll see you at the Fish Creek Festival!
