We are excited to welcome The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers to the Elevated Songwriter Series on April 7th, 2018. The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers perform original songs and tunes inspired by the classic hillbilly, country-duo, and old-time musical traditions--and also mines this same repertoire for forgotten gems that deserve to be heard again.
Based in Soldiers Grove, WI, the Sapsuckers (Nikki Grossman, guitar, fiddle, and vocals; Joe Hart, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) perform frequent concerts, as well as square and contra dances, and they are known for the light touch and sense of humor they bring to their performance.
They are launching their 2018 album, "Don't Think About Tomorrow Tonight," at an official SXSW showcase, as well as numerous Midwest tour dates. Their 2015 album, "Ocooch Mountain Home," (their second), has received high praise from the likes of fROOTS, Bluegrass Today, and Country Music People UK.
Chicago singer/songwriter Simeon Peebler (www.simeonpeebler.com) will be opening the show.
As always, advance seats can be reserved at elevatedsongwriterseries.tumblr.com. Cost is a $10-15 sliding scale donation per person. Doors will open at 7:30PM, and snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be available during the show.
