Next Main Stage Concert:

Sam Packard and Steve Hanson

Sam Packard and Steve Hanson
Saturday, March 24, 7:30 p.m.

Fiddle and banjo together is about as traditional as it gets in American acoustic music. We've asked outstanding local talents Sam Packard and Steve Hanson to showcase these instruments and the music they can make together, along with special guests Dave Miller on mandolin, Terry Schmidt on rhythm guitar, and Dave Morris on bass. Join us for an evening of homegrown music!
