The Volo Bogtrotters
October 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20 – $25
The Volo Bogtrotters hit the ground running somewhere near Chicago in the mid-1980s. They quickly gained a reputation around the Midwest and across the country for their hard-driving, twin-fiddle renditions of songs and tunes collected from older musicians and rare 78 rpm recordings. Thirty-five years later, after picking up one more band member, that combination of drive, virtuosity, and authenticity remains as vital as ever.
So, come prepared for an evening of high energy old-time dance music, comic and sentimental songs from the era of 78 RPM records, and perhaps a few surprises from the Midwest’s premier old-time string band.
