Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, Bluegrass at the Village 2016 will take you from the Irish Immigrants’ roots of bluegrass through the modern-day boot-stomping Americana. With some of the best musicians in Southeastern Wisconsin, this year’s lineup include: • Frogwater • Pickin’ Up Speed • Thistledown Thunders • Chickenwire Empire • The WhiskeyBelles. New to Bluegrass at the Village this year, are Frogwater with its Irish influence and special featured and ever-popular, The WhiskeyBelles with their three-part harmony and entertaining style.
In addition to the outstanding bluegrass music, young and talented fiddlers show off their talent around the village. A wide selection of food and beverages can be enjoyed, including craft beers at the beer tent. Guests can show off their talents by participating in the “Kitchen Band”. Some of the homemade instruments will be the washboard, washtub, stump fiddle and jug. This year’s marketplace will showcase local area artists who make handmade soaps, fused glass and baskets, to name a few. There are also raffles with prizes donated by local area businesses. It is great fun for all ages!
Tickets may be purchased the day of the event and are a real bargain: $10.00 for Adults and $8.00 for seniors and students. Children 5 years of age and under are free. The grounds open at 11:30 and music starts at 12:30 and music continues to 6:00PM. Rain-or-Shine.
