Captain John Nolte Has Had Varied Career


If you stop by to see Captain John Nolte perform at Joe Jo's Pizza and Gelato in Ephraim you'll certainly see a very accomplished musician.

But you'll also see an engineer, a missionary, a ship's captain, and a carpenter.

Nolte has been all those things during a career that's had quite a few twists and turns, including a stint in the commercial fishing industry.

The dangerous aspect of that line of work is chronicled in 'The Men of the Linda E,' a song Captain John wrote in memory of three friends who were lost when the Linda E went down on Lake Michigan on December 11, 1998.


Nolte is not only adept at putting notes together. He recently constructed an entire house. Nolte says he honed his carpentry skills during time spent doing missionary work and used those skills to build a log house with a wrap-around porch in the woods of Ellison Bay. He tells us there's a special satisfaction that comes with living in a place that you built.

Nolte (and no, he's no relation to Nick in case you're wondering) says he'll be playing at Joe Jo's on Saturday evenings from 5 - 7 p.m. for the next 10 weeks.
