2013 TICKETED PERFORMANCES 

and SPECIAL EVENTS

BRIAN MILLER and RANDY GOSA

Traditional music from the Northwoods

Saturday October 19th 7 pm
Tickets $10

A native of the northern Minnesota logging town of Bemidji,
 Brian Miller teams up with Wisconsinite Randy Gosa 
to perform the Irish-influenced music of men who roamed the Great Lakes region in the days when pine was king. 
Miller and Gosa have both performed Irish traditional music 
with top musicians in the US and Ireland for years.
Together they mix a passion for northwoods history and folklore with their love of arranging forgotten songs to bring to life this rich but under-explored music.

"A wonderful exploration of and oft-overlooked facet of the Irish American experience... ...brilliantly curated and superbly executed."  
-Daniel Neely, The Irish Echo


 "...the most fun thing at [the Milwaukee] Irish Fest this year"
- Erik Carlson, "A Feast of Irish Folk" WHPK Chicago









THE DUPONT BROTHERS

Saturday October 20th 6 to 8 pm





Tickets $10



Two brothers reunite after years of geographical separation by a fortified collaboration in music.
Sam and Zack DuPont are best friends, siblings and now co-conspirators in a shared passion that runs deep in their family.
 After a groundbreaking show at Nectar's in Burlington VT, it was clear that the next step was to merge the brothers writing styles and form one super-group to be known as The DuPont Brothers. 



Together the DuPont Brothers resonate at just the right frequency. There were moments that honestly gave me chills."-Dan Bolles, Seven Days

GOSPEL NITE w SILVERWOOD BOTTOM BOYS Second Sundays


...this is a FUN TIME!

HOSTED BY 
the SILVERWOOD BOTTOM BOYS
EVERY second SUNDAY at 7pm!

If one follows the two track north of Silverwood, Michigan, you cross the rolling countryside and approach the great cedar swamp. If you pause and listen closely you may here sounds of ole gospel music. If you walk carefully through the blackberry briars and low hanging cedar bows, you can make your way to the clearing where you can see the Silverwood Bottom Boys, under the tin covered lean-to, practicing for their next excursion into the modern world with their brand of ole time gospel music.
In the barn behind the lean-to, the ’46 Buick is gassed-up and ready to take them, and occasionally some of their friends, to a performance near you. They’ve been known to play ice-cream socials, Sunday school picnics, birthday parties, church services, anniversaries, tent revivals, hymn singin’s, wedding receptions, farmer’s markets,

and as of late they are regulars at Saginaw, Michigan’s finest music venue


The White Crow Conservatory of Music
every Second SUNDAY at 7PM

Minimum $5 at the DOOR


CROW OPEN MIC with Oz OSWALD THIRD FRIDAYS


ITS YOUR TURN !

THE OPEN MIC at the CROW is a recurring event
every third Friday from 7 to 9pm!


It is hosted by Oz Oswald and 

has been growing quite an audience!
We have musicians that participate 
who range from Professionals to complete beginners so everyone should feel at HOME!

Here's how it goes...
1 / Everyone.. even those performing pays $5 at the door.


2 / If you are coming to perform please come by 6:30 for sign up.


3 / We will give you as many swipes at the mic as time will allow!


4 / Please have your instrument tuned up before you take the stage.


5 / To be fair to all performers, keep your songs to 4 minutes or under. An open mic is not the place for the Album version.


6 / You can bring CDs for sale at back table if you have them and yes the money is all yours!


7 / VERY OFTEN I have booked in songwriters that have been frequent performers at the Open mic for a slot in a Songwriter Showcase!
So dont be afraid to show us your stuff!
If you are coming to enjoy the show and not perform..
There is alot less to remember.. come at 7 and ENJOY!!!!!!
