Live Music – Buffalo Gals, with Kickapoo Joy Juice
May 30 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Buffalo Gals have been called “a local acoustic harmony duo steeped in traditional bluegrass and folk music with just the right amount of lament.” A duo all the way from Nashville, TN, the group features Melissa Carper and Rebecca Patek.
In 2017 four local musicians got together with the intent of starting a new band, now known as Kickapoo Joy Juice. These musicians all shared a love of music from another time and were also devoted to preserving the legacy of Ethel Lerum. Their music is infectiously fun, toe tapping and danceable with lively polkas, beautiful waltzes, novelty songs, rags and reels. The members of Kickapoo Joy Juice include Jesse Downs on fiddle and accordion and Liz Voz on guitar. Liz and Jesse have been in the area for over ten years, farming, playing music together and calling square dances. David Gibbs plays the clarinet. A Gays Mills native, David has returned to the area after two decades in San Francisco performing and teaching music. Jane Keeley, a familiar face in the Driftless music scene, plays the stand-up bass.
Held at Driftless Books and Music (518 Walnut St., Viroqua)
