Big Ole was the legendary first settler of Minnesota. He was a Norwegian Viking who came over on a ship and made a trek to what is now Alexandria, Minnesota. A 25-foot statue of Big Ole proudly stands in their town. This enchanting work pays homage to Big Ole! It's rhythmic, lyrical, and simply fun for players and audiences.
