2016 Performances

Wednesday evening featured a great night with Corky Siegel. Over the years, we’ve enjoyed Chamber Blues, Amadeus Consort, Irish music with the incomparable John Williams, and even the amazing Beatles Tribute band, American English and you’ll enjoy this year’s evening of great music.

Thursday evening was energy and excitement with Chicago blues! Big Ray, a Chicago blues stalwart, was once again joined by a stage full of great performers including Blues Hall of Fames saxophone legend, Mr. Eddie Shaw.
