Community band is latest passion for Cloquet couple
If you'd asked her 50, 40 or even 20 years ago, Carol Risdon would never have predicted she'd be directing the Cloquet Community Band. Heck, she wouldn't even have predicted she'd be playing bass drum for the band.
"Gene was the one [who was musical]," Carol said. "He played trombone in high school in Superior and Cloquet. I played zippo.
"I didn't get my musical ability until I was in my 50s."
