The schedule (found here) includes Sons of the Never Wrong, Doko Benjo,The Flat Cats,Old Town Schoolof Folk Music,Typhanie Monique & Neal Alger,Haywood Yards, Kevin Flynn & The Avondale, Ramblers, The Three Troubadours, Night, Detagoh, Carlos Ortega and the Cory Atkinson Band.
Sons of the Never Wrong on June 11 are a folk trio from Chicago made up of Bruce Roper, Deborah Lader, and Sue Demel. The band has been creating original “turbo-charged folk music” for 15 years to a cult-like national following. With their different take on three part harmony on top of witty, whimsical songs, Sons’ style springs from a tradition you’d swear you’ve heard, but this just ain’t your grandpop’s folk music.
The Son’s 5 CD releases have brought them stunning national and international reviews as well as extensive radio-play. It is their live performances though that win the audience’s hearts. The group can barely stand still on stage and insty-choreography results in a non-stop show of stories, dancing, and odd-ball humor. Yet it is when the three step up to the mic and belt out one of their many gorgeously- arranged songs, that you know you are in for something extra special.
While enjoying the concerts please consider making a donation to support the
series. A collection bin will be located at the base of the stage during every
concert. Your support will help continue this neighborhood tradition.
