“Loeffelmacher, Part 2” at museum Thursday

NEW ULM — Terry Sveine will give a one-hour presentation entitled, “The Life of New Ulm’s Old-time Music Master, Harold Loeffelmacher – Part Two,” on Thursday in the next Brown County Historical Society ” Lunch and a Bite of History lecture.”

The presentation will be held in the Brown County Museum Annex meeting room at 12 noon.

Following up from his popular “Part One” presentation done in May, this time Sveine will take the audience along for the “glory years” of Harold’s career – from 1946 until his death and legacy. Highlights will include humorous tales of life on the road, Harold’s RCA recording contract, family life, stories of some of his musicians, his many awards and honors, and Harold’s legacy.

Many photos and images will accompany the talk as Sveine makes the case that Harold was the best old-time music leader in the entire country! This presentation is based on Sveine’s 125-page biography (not quite finished) of Loeffelmacher and will contain information guaranteed to entertain and inform citizens of all ages and interests.

Lunch and a Bite of History is free to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch; complimentary coffee and water will be available.
