Fleetwood Mac and Steely Dan wander through the backwoods and get lost. After some time they find a cabin in which to take refuge.
The cabin is sparse but contains a wall of traditional instruments as well as a rock ‘n roll backline.
They sit down to play.
Occasionally they get visitors, like Patsy Cline, Tom Waits, Howlin’ Wolf, Gillian Welch, Al Green and Tom Petty but mostly they are alone together passing the time with their instruments, playing songs you’ve never heard before.
If you like that story, you might enjoy the Collette Savard Band. With her palette of acoustic folk instrument, Collette whiddles out of her imagination beautiful song gems. She brings them to you wrapped in the exciting package of her band of seasoned masters.

Doors at 2pm Show at 3pm $10 per family
The Lonesome Ace Stringband brings grit, skill and abandon to old-time, Appalachian folk songs and fiddle/banjo tunes. These are songs and tunes for life and all of it’s occasions: festivals, dances, wars, parties and funerals. The music comes from a tradition that has inspired and brought together generations of people. It’s themes – love, loss, hard work and hardship, faith, and everyday life – speak to everyone. The members are Chris Coole on banjo, John Showman on fiddle and Max Heineman on bass. Together they bring a deep respect for the roots of the music, a keen sense of innovation to the performance and material, and a passion for the sound that transcends both. This is old-time music for today’s old soul.
