On Friday and Saturday, the troupe will host 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. performances at The Red Dog Saloon.

A portion of profits will be donated to a local nonprofit. Last year’s recipient was AWARE.
University of Alaska Sitka designer earns Rasmuson Foundation award
John Ingman, an instructional designer at the Sitka campus of the University of Alaska Southeast, will receive a Rasmuson Foundation individual artist project award in the Folk and Traditional Arts category.
Ingman plays the bagpipes, specifically the Uilleann pipes, which connects with his Irish heritage, according to UAS. Ingman plans to use the $7,500 award to advance his knowledge and performance by studying with a champion piper and traveling to piper gatherings.
“I was really shocked and surprised when I got the call saying I had won an award,” Ingman said in a release. “This is a truly life changing event and I can’t thank the Rasmuson Foundation enough. It is fantastic how they support the arts in Alaska, and I am grateful to be part of that.”
