Bluegrass at the Village
Over the past 17 years, Bluegrass at the Village has grown to be our biggest fund-raiser. Bluegrass at the Village will be held August 13th at Ozaukee County Pioneer Village.
Four bands will play throughout the afternoon on the platform of the newly restored Cedarburg Train Station. It is the perfect setting for bluegrass music. We are excited to bring several new bands to the lineup this year. The Piper Road String Band is doing a 50th Anniversary Tour and will be starting us off. They have been a festival favorite for decades and are masters of the bluegrass tradition. Stillhouse Junkies from Durango Colorado will be this year?s featured band. The Stillhouse Junkies blend genres of blues, bluegrass and swing to provide a sound uniquely of their own. Back by popular demand, Pickin? Up Speed will perform their favorite traditional tunes. Fox Crossing String Band from Chicago will take the stage next. This all-female group is known for their beautiful harmonies and entertaining stage presence. Their debut album, ?Box of Memories?, blends original songwriter tracks with popular cover hits with a bluegrass style. All the bands form a nice variety of energy and sounds.
As usual, the event includes a wide variety of food, desserts and beverages including a beer/wine tent. Our village of 24 historic buildings dating back to the mid-1800s will be open for touring. We also will be holding a fundraising raffle of items provided by local area businesses.
