The Heritage Hillside Series continues with a new group, The Buskers, next Wednesday evening, July 17.
A father-son duo steeped in a passion for the guitar, they play multi-genre folk, blues, rock, piedmont and delta blues. Adam Nirmaier plays acoustic and electric six-string guitar and mandolin, whose influences include John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix.
Locals will recognize Tom Nirmaier, most recently with Ten Mile Creek, a long-time musician playing six- and 12-string acoustic and resonator guitars, whose influences include John Prine, Neil Young, Keb Mo and Charlie Parr. This unique generational duo offers similarities and contrasts, classic and modern that melds together to form “The Buskers.”
And what is a “Busker”? It is described as a person who entertains in a public place for donations- i.e. street musician.
The music starts at 6:30 p.m., but plan to come early. Bring along a picnic supper, a picnic blanket or lawn chairs and get ready to dance a little, sing along, or just sit back and enjoy the music.
The evening’s sponsor is Daren Powers CPA. There will be pop and popcorn available for sale.
This is a rain or shine event. In case of inclement weather, we’ll move into the Pavilion, with limited seating. Call 715-246-3276 for more information.
