Event Details

Join the Hiawatha Music Coop for an “Opry style” event at the Ore Dock Brewing Company. This event, presented by All Strings Considered and friends, will be a walk down the gospel music memory lane. Beginning with examples of Shape Note singing, Sprituals and early Carter Family songs, Fisk Jubilee singers and primitive Baptist songs. The concert will feature local traditional music performers – Phil and Annette Watts, All Strings Considered, Bill Hart, John Gillette and Sarah Mittlefehldt, Jim Janofsky, MC Charlie West, and of course, audience participation.

An “Opry style” performance will be demonstrated throughout, using a single microphone that singers move forward to and then step back, much like is still used at the Grand Ole Opry.
Complimentary snacks will be provided by the Co-op. All ages welcome. Craft activities for children.
