An Evening of Bluegrass. King Wilkie's Dream and Stay Tuned will be performing at the Mineral Point Opera House on Saturday, July 11 at 7:30PM. Tickets for this concert are $15.
What's in a name? King Wilkie was Bill Monroe's horse. King Wilkie's Dream is a fiddle tune, written by our own John Niemann. The band, King Wilkie's Dream, has little to do with the subject-matter of the tune, but everything to do with the musical thoughts and emanations of its four members, John Niemann guitar, fiddle, mandolin, vocals, Shane Zack mandolin, guitar, vocals, Vaughn Asselstine bass, vocals, and Robbi Podrug fiddle, vocals.
King Wilkie's Dream (KWD) does not worry about achieving a particular level of drive or meandering in the wilderness of rhythm and vibe. The band sets out to stretch musically and creatively, while entertaining in a way that transcends generations and connects with audiences. Whether it is an original song, a well-worn traditional number, or something from outside the genre of Blue Grass, the tune receives the same attention to detail, resulting in the band's New Sound, Big Noise.
Beer will be served at the concession stand.
Stay Tuned is made up of Paul Biere and Yvonne McIntyre. They will be performing classic country duets.
