Ring of Kerry

Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts; 205 Main Street East Menomonie, WI 54751
Ring of Kerry is a bursting-with-energy Irish music group that captures the hearts of listeners. All five of its engaging musicians sing and play several instruments. With sounds that range from the thunder of the Irish bodhran drum to the sparkle of the hammered dulcimer;
from the lilt and rhythm of fiddle and guitar to the haunting wails of flutes and pennywhistles, the band has
developed a blend that is animated, ruggedly beautiful and fun. These musicians get close to their audience,
joking, ribbing and laughing along but are respectful and friendly. Audiences always react with great enthusiasm!

$25 Adults, $23 Seniors and Students

A Rocky Mountain Christmas

Heyde Center for the Arts, 3 South High Street , Chippewa Falls, WI 54729
The music of the late John Denver is like an old friend. It has outlasted changing musical trends and has stood the test of time. Join acclaimed performer Jim Curry for this tribute to the music of one of the most beloved singer/songwriters ever to grace the stage. Tribute artist Jim Curry has performed Denver’s music in sold out shows throughout the country and has emerged as today’s top performer of Denver’s vast legacy of multi-platinum hits. Jim’s uncanny ability to mirror John’s voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the time when “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine,” “Calypso,” and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts, and his popular music had the heartfelt message of caring for the earth and caring for each other.

The Chippewa Valley Jazz Orchestra with Sheryl Bailey

State Theatre, Eau Claire
The Chippewa Valley Jazz Orchestra is pleased to take the State Theatre stage with Sheryl Bailey. There's no description more apt for Sheryl Bailey than "A sizzling guitar goddess", coined by Elliot Simon of All About Jazz. He's not alone with his superlatives-Adam Levy of Guitar Player Magazine calls Sheryl "One of the most compelling tones of her generation", and Frank Forte of Just Jazz Guitar ranks her "among the best bop guitar players with a fresh approach and something new."
