One Caledonia resident is helping locals connect to their community through music.

Audrey Almo started taking accordion lessons at the age of 10 in La Crosse. She was a member of Danny’s Accordion Band, alongside her sister Yvonne and played on both radio and television stations in her youth. The band would travel around the Coulee Region, spreading joy and music wherever they went.
