Luunappi is a Finnish term for a snappy sound to the ear. Luunappi also means an afternoon of snappy music, poems and stories for kids and families on Sunday, March 11, 2 p.m. at the Glen Arbor Arts Center [GAAC], 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.

Leelanau County musicians and raconteurs Norm Wheeler and Pat Niemisto will fill the GAAC gallery with luunappi-infused songs and tale tales as part of the GAAC’s celebration of Youth Art Month. An exhibition of work by Glen Lake School sixth-grade students and the GAAC’s After School Art kids will be on display March 1 – 23, 2018. Patrick Niemisto and Norm Wheeler create a grab bag of family and children’s entertainment. From Woodie Guthrie and Bill Staines to J. W. Riley and Dr. Seuss, the duo layer classical and original material to show you a magical world of sneetches and goblins, skunks and hoboes, shipwrecked sailors, grown-ups in the sauna, and kids with dirty rooms.

The GAAC’s Luunappi concert is free for children, and $5 for adults at the door. More information may be found at the GAAC website: www.glenarborart.org; or call 231/334-6112.
