Cokato siblings compete in bluegrass contest in Branson

COKATO, MN – Four siblings from The Mahlstedt Family band in Cokato were finalists in a recent bluegrass band contest in Branson, MO.

“This is the first contest we’ve done like this,” said 20-year-old Isaiah.

Isaiah is one of nine children in the family of Dean and Lorna Mahlstedt of Cokato. Isaiah is a guitar player, while his brother Jacob, 18, is a mandolin and fiddle player. Their younger brother, Caleb, plays Dobro (a type of acoustic guitar), and their sister, Hannah, 14, plays banjo and fiddle. All four of them are skilled vocalists, as well.

The Mahlstedt Family has been performing old and new bluegrass and gospel renditions for about 10 years.

Names of Corn Carnival volunteers sought

COKATO, MN – Do you know someone who has contributed to the success of the Cokato Corn Carnival the past few decades?

The Cokato Corn Carnival committee is seeking names of people who have served for 45 years or more in the corn stand, information booth, or bingo stand, and have not previously received a service award from the committee.

“This special recognition is taking place because we feel we may have missed some people who we need to recognize and thank,” noted Dorene Erickson, Cokato Corn Carnival chair. “We have no past records to check on these important people, and we’re hoping this is a good way to find them and thank them.”

Volunteers will be recognized during this year’s Cokato Corn Carnival coronation ceremony.
