Mark the calendar for 1 p.m. Saturday, July 6. Terry and Linda will appear at the 1883 Stutsman County Courthouse.
Steven Reidburn, site supervisor for the Historic 1883 Stutsman County Courthouse, said the performers were a favorite when he worked at Fort Buford. Terry writes his own music and poetry and plays the guitar, he said. Linda plays stringed instruments, sings and is a visual artist.
They have appeared in Medora and showcased in a number of regional music festivals.
Linda plays the banjo, mandolin, bass guitar and guitar. She is a graduate of Jamestown College where she studied fine arts and emphasized visual and musical art forms. She played with the University of Jamestown’s band and theatrical performances, and her visual art was featured in a number of art exhibitions.
Terry writes many of his songs. One that is based on life is about a John Deere Tractor, a farmer and a woman. Reidburn said it was about a neighbor Terry once had.
The duo is sometimes accompanied by a friend who plays bass when Linda plays the banjo.

As an aside, Timothy Bratton (historian and professor-emeritus from UJ) is assisting Reidburn this summer doing research and giving tours. For his students and others interested in the courtroom’s acoustics, he brings his violin from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (Wednesday through Saturday) and will play in the courtroom so visitors can hear the way sound resonates in the 136-year-old room.
