Black Hawk Folk Society Concert announces line-up
Black Hawk Folk Society proudly announces its winter-into-spring Second Saturday concert schedule. The series will kick-off with L.J. Booth & Chris Kokesh on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. This singer-songwriter duo is known and loved for beautiful harmonies. Expect music and a vibe that will warm the winter night.
Dangerous Folk, a Mil-waukee trio, will take the stage Saturday, Feb. 8. Doug Esty, Julie Thompson, and David HB Drake combine forces to reinvigorate the classic folk tunes of the 1960s and 70s.
Blowing in just in time for the Ides of March is Triflemore, on Saturday, March 14. A transatlantic folk duo—one from the remote isles of Scotland and the other from small-town America—these musicians bridge the distance with their own delicious blend of progressive, Celtic, and British Isles folk.
K.G. & the Ranger will be the night’s entertainment on Saturday, April 11. Hailing from Madison, they have performed throughout the United States and are loved for their ability to bring cowboy heroes and the Old West back to life with their music.
Mean Mary returns to Black Hawk’s roster on Saturday, May 9. Wikipedia sums her up as “an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, novelist, producer, and YouTube personality.” You’re invited to come see and hear for yourself.
These five Second Sat-urday concerts will be held at Mountain View Community Center, at N3137 21st Lane, near the intersection of 21st Lane and Highway 152, near Mt. Morris and Wautoma.
General admission tickets will be sold at the door from 6:30 p.m. on, with the concert beginning at 7 p.m.
Concert-goers are invited to begin the evening by joining the performer and other music lovers at a potluck supper at 6 p.m. Mountain View is handicap friendly and offers plenty of free, on-site parking.
