Willy Porter and Carmen Nickerson

The Boston Globe calls Milwaukee-based Willy Porter “an acoustic picker with the Olympian speed of Leo Kottke, bolstered by rootsy vocals and twisting, offbeat lyrics.” Roy Kasten, in Riverfront Times, praises Carmen Nickerson’s work with Willy as “dusty, bluesy phrasing [offering] a warm counterpoint to Porter’s charred baritone and unpredictable guitar excursions.” Together, they create a musical dialogue, delivering a story needing to be seen and heard.

Willy and Carmen will peform throughout the weekend and will be featued as part of Saturday’s evening concert.

Dead Horses Returns for 2018

Dead Horses is coming back to the fest for the second time, and we are excited to welcome back this fine Wisconsin treasure and WAMI award winning group. They have been hop scotching the nation with release of their 3rd album My Mother the Moon which NPR Music described as “evocative, empathetic storytelling” and Rollingstone called “a beautifully uncluttered collection of songs.” Sarah Vos brings her personal hymns and rich vocals wrapped with impeccable backup from Daniel Wolff for a intense emotional and energetic performance.
