See Viroqua: Art Unveiling!

See Viroqua Arts Unveiling is just around the corner! With funding and support from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and Arts Wisconsin, The Viroqua Chamber Main Street has launched the “See Viroqua” Arts Project.  Inspired by iconic WPA Posters of the 1930’s and 40’s, the Viroqua Chamber Main Street has commissioned six local artists to create a unique poster celebrating and promoting Viroqua.

On Thursday, October 14 from 6-8pm, the original pieces will be unveiled at a public reception at Rooted Spoon in downtown Viroqua. Art will be revealed at 6:30, followed by a reception. The artists will be present to reveal their art and inspiration, hors d’oeuvres will be provided, and Rooted Spoon will open the bar for refreshments.  Prints of the art will be available at the event, and throughout the holiday season. 

For more information, please contact the Viroqua Chamber Main Street at (608)637-2575 or infodesk@viroqua-wisconsin.com

Outdoor Concert: Dead Horses with Pat Ferguson

Join us at Sidie Hollow for our Music in the Parks finale! Dead Horses will be joined by Pat Ferguson for an amazing evening! Bring a chair, bring a friend! Food and drink will be on site!

Dead Horses:
Dead Horses isn’t a band in the conventional sense. Rather, it’s an intimate, folk-inspired conversation between two close friends. At its core, the participants are guitarist/singer Sarah Vos and bassist Daniel Wolff. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based pair’s dialogue continues with an eclectic five-song EP, Birds (released February 7), which includes the band’s previously released singles “Family Tapes,” “Mighty Storm,” and “Birds Can Write The Chorus.” Dead Horses weave together a vibrant patchwork of classic and contemporary influences that span trad roots, indie- folk, and other experimental musical idioms. Through it all, the union of Sarah’s emotive songwriting with Dan’s intrepid bass playing transcends the singer-songwriter-with-backup-musicians paradigm.
 
Pat Ferguson:
Originally making waves as a founding member and lead guitarist for longtime Midwest music scene staple, Smokin’ Bandits, LoHi Records recording artist Pat Ferguson (Madison, WI) has emerged as a nationally renowned solo performer, songwriter, and vocalist. His finger and flat-picking style channels Americana, bluegrass, and folk; a signature sound deeply influenced by his Upper Mississippi River musical roots.
