Saturday, February 28, 8pm
Jubilee Riots – the band formerly known as Enter the Haggis, an eclectic band with bagpipes, fiddle, whistle, harmonica, trumpet and a roots-rock rhythm section – return with both the new name and a new album – Penny Black – with songs inspired by fan letters the band has received over the years.
Saturday, March 7, 7:30pm
Leo Kottke’s astounding virtuosity on six- and 12-string guitars is awe-inspiring, and his unique musical vision has placed him among the foremost acoustic guitar stylists of our era. Combined with his one-of-a-kind song lyrics, off-kilter stories and quick wit, an evening with Leo Kottke is one not to be missed.
ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL

Sunday, March 8, 7pm
Led by Ray Benson, Asleep at the Wheel – today’s torchbearers of western swing – pay tribute to the originators of the genre with their new recording, Still the King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys. The fiddling Quebe Sisters open the show with their own blend of Texas swing and vintage country.
NEW RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE
