JULY 11 | PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE

Cousin Curtiss | 2:00pm-3:00pm & 3:30pm - 4:30pm

Rootstomp isn’t cute. Rootstomp music doesn’t have choreographed dancers on stage. Cousin Curtiss has a Ph.D. in Rootstomp music and his lectures are dripping with juicy knowledge. While defining what it means to be a One-Man-Band Cousin Curtiss proves that Rootstomp music is a raw blend of Folk, Blues, and Bluegrass without the twang. Rootstomp music is an interesting conversation between guitars, bass, drums, and sometimes the harmonica wants the floor. Cousin Curtiss’s Rootstomp shows are contagious with enthusiasm, energy, and toe-tapping-foot-stomping-hand-clapping goodness. Add to that stories of life on the road and living in a self-made tiny house after leaving behind a successful teaching career in Alaska to chase a dream and you have an entertaining show of the highest value.

Arm Chair Boogie | 5:30pm - 6:30pm & 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Rising from the forests and rivers of central Wisconsin, Armchair Boogie's high-energy take on the Jamgrass genre fuses intricate arrangements of acoustic guitar and banjo with the funky back beats of electric bass and drums.
