Another Great Weekend for Music Groupies
An audience favorite from the North Shore of Minnesota returns to the Rookery stage this evening for the fourth consecutive year. Pushing Chain is the duo of Boyd Blomberg from Grand Marais on guitar and Adam Moe of Duluth on fiddle. Their musical genre is roots and Americana, with a set list that includes original songs, covers of classic artists like Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, and Nina Simone, and some fresh new takes on old folk songs. The duo features tight harmonies and a gonzo approach which keeps performances fresh and exciting.
In addition to their exceptional musical skills, these guys also engage the audience with fun stories and witty banter. If you haven't had the opportunity yet to enjoy a performance by Pushing Chain you really owe it to yourself to head on down to the Rookery this evening from 5 to 8 PM.
Then on Sunday afternoon we welcome back for the third time a great duo from the Mississippi River country of western Wisconsin. Skipping Stones is John Capper and Karen Nimmo, seasoned musical artists who play a unique variety of both cover and original songs. John plays guitar and sings while Karen sings, plays guitar, keyboard, and some flute and small percussion instruments. Skipping Stones is rooted in classic rock, but also performs some blues, country, and contemporary songs, producing a surprisingly full sound with rich harmonies and quality instrumentation.
It's another great weekend of live music at the Rookery! Hopefully outdoors, though the wet summer continues to bedevil us just a bit and there's a slight chance of rain in the forecast. No worries, however, as both shows will go on regardless. It should be plenty warm enough for outdoor seating under our covered pavilion but we'll pull things indoors if it looks as though we're in for more than a few passing showers.
Either way, music fans are going to love the performers we're bringing to the Rookery for you this weekend. See you here!
