FolkLib Index - Oshkosh Northwestern Artist of the Week

(last updated .03-14-2008)

          Beginning 1-05-2005, the "Oshkosh Northwestern" began publishing a weekly column called, "Artist of the Week". As the first column was about a musician, I had hopes that it would profile 52 different recording artists in 2005 some of whom I might not be aware of yet to include in my forthcoming book, (ca. 2028), FolkLib Index: Wisconsin Discography. However, "Artist" is being used generically. Subsequent columns have profiled mostly local Oshkosh Painters, Photographers, Actors/Actresses, Museum Curators, etc. Below is the list of the "Artists" profiled to date. Bold links marked "Northwestern" go to the text of the published article archived on the paper's Web site, which does not link to the "Artists" Web site. For that link, you have to go to another page, the column's archive index page.
          The non-bolded links go to the "FolkLib Index" entry for that Recording Artist.
          Musicians profiled: - Rob Anthony | Bruce Atwell | Erin Boehme | Josh Calhoun | Amy Jo Doty | Fuse | Matthew Golay | William LaRue Jones | Elizabeth Larson | Janet Planet | Mark Powers | Donna Ruzicka | Sage | Spin | John Statz | Marc White |
