Driftless Music Festival

Area residents will once again be treated to the sounds of great music wafting across Viroqua’s Eckhart Park at the Second Annual Driftless Music Festival on Saturday, July 6 from 1:00 until 10:00 p.m.

Conceived as a successor to the 1950s band concerts in the park’s pavilion, and as a gift to the community, the free, family-friendly event will feature a broad variety of music for all ages.

Included in the musical line-up are the Bad Axe Blues Band, a Driftless area favorite, Harmonious Wail, a Gypsy-swing group, El Clan Destino, a contemporary Cuban ensemble, and the Scottie Miller Band, a combination of blues, soul, funk and jazz– “sounds like Dr. John meets The Band at Bruce Springsteen’s house.”

Headlining the evening will be the Tom Gullion quintet, with its wide variety of jazz sounds deeply rooted in the American jazz tradition.

Kicking off the event will be a group of local students to showcase their talents with a range of engaging music.

Food with a local flair will be available for purchase–including sandwiches, wood-fired pizza, crepes, strawberry shortcake and locally-produced sodas and coffee drinks.

Saturday’s event will be followed by a Gospel Music Service at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 504 South Main Street, Viroqua on Sunday morning July 7, starting at 10:15 a.m. That service is open to all.

Major sponsors for the event include Viroqua Food Coop, Organic Valley, METCO, Viroqua Area Rotary Club, Charles Knower and Patricia DeMark Knower, and WDRT Community Radio.

Fest-goers are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for their comfort. Eckhart Park is located two blocks West of Main Street in Viroqua, next to the Vernon County Courthouse. More information about the Festival is available on the Web at www.driftlessmusicfestival.com or by calling 608-637-6110. Again, admission is free.

For more information, contact Charlie Knower at 608.637.6110 or charlie.knower@gmail.com.
