Patty & Craig in Concert

“… I looked around and Patty & Craig were the best Wisconsin had to offer … ” ~ Dave Sheely, Celebrate Hudson Concert Series

Described as an acoustically good marriage, Patty & Craig are known for their gorgeous harmonies, impeccable musicianship, playful stage humor, and jewel-like original songs. Although primarily roots singer songwriters, Patty & Craig also offer their take on timeless classics, supported by guitars, piano.  

Patty Stevenson is a classically trained pianist and finger-style guitarist. She often writes portrait songs of people in her life and in history. Craig Siemsen has been described as a leading midwest guitarist with a voice that is a mixture of honey and grit. His songwriting speaks to the human condition with poetry and humor. The combination of these two artists creates a sound that is full on spark and joy.

Doors open at 6:30pm; concert starts at 7:00pm.

Tickets are $15 and are available here

Dalakopa in Concert

7:30 pm; doors opening 7:00 pm

Dalakopa is coming to the United States!

Thanks to a grant from the American Scandinavian Foundation, Folklore Village will be sponsoring Dalakopa’s tour in the Upper Midwest, with selected partners.  The first concert of their tour will be in Farwell Hall, at Folklore Village.

Dalakopa is an international group of musicians from 4 countries: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and the USA. Together they have found a special sound, due to different starting points musically, and the countries they come from. Their repertoire comes mainly from the Røros district, Østerdalen, Sweden and also from the group’s own composers. They love to play for dancing; and depending on public health concerns,  we hope to incorporate an after-concert dance into their performance.

Workshops will likely also be offered on Sunday, September 25.  Stay tuned~

Tickets on sale soon!
