Music on October 15 by Josh Ruebeck and Briannon Carlsen

Josh Ruebeck.smJosh Ruebeck is a Carleton College student with a love and appreciation for folk music that belies his youth. A musician since he was 7 years old, Josh gravitated to the music of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan because of the stories told in those songs. The music inspired him to learn to play the guitar, the cello, and develop his voice into a fine instrument as well. He and fellow Carleton student Briannon Carlsen will be sharing their favorite folk songs on Saturday at Riverwalk Market Fair.
