They've got the energy to do it and have planned plenty of audience participation, some fun and games and a few door-prize give-aways to make sure everyone has a great time. Laura is an Irish fiddler, but our audiences first met her in Mt. Angel playing bass for Uncle Earl. Multi-instrumentalist, song-writer, high-energy performer, all around good-time-girl, and determined that you will leave happy!

April 18, 2009, Great Northern Planes
Saturday, 7:30 PM

    Great Northern Planes plays stand-up bluegrass with style and energy. Their acapella is superb and they feature one of my bluegrass favorites . . . a fine rendition of "Diana." It'll knock your socks off! These guys started the Celebrate Music series for us six years ago and they just keep getting better with age but unlike wine, they don't mellow much; they're still full of high energy that bluegrass takes. Traditional and contemporary, they'll keep you entertained the whole time!

May 16, 2009, Frank Messina Band
7:30 pm

    The Frank Messina Band, is a 16-piece 1940s-style swing jazz band that pulls out all the stops for the big band sound of a different era. We're going to take down the stage and put them on the floor so there's plenty of room to cut a rug or try that new jitter-bug you've been waiting to try! This is a concert and DANCE! Plenty of brass and those old-time tunes that kept the country dancing through the ends of a depression and brought the boys back home from a war. Sound familiar? Some things really are worth repeating!!
