Posted by Charlene Elderkin on Mon, Jun 24, 2013 @ 10:43 AM

Enjoy the sounds of great music throughout Viroqua’s Eckhart Park at the 2nd Annual Driftless Music Festival on Saturday, July 6th from 1-10p.m. This is a free, family-friendly event.
Tom Gullion will kick off the event with an assembled group of his students to showcase their talents with a range of engaging music.

The musical line-up includes: the Bad Axe Blues Band, a Driftless area favorite, Harmonious Wail, a Gypsy-swing group, El Clan Destino, a contemporary Cuban ensemble, and the Scottie Miller Band, a combination of blues, soul, funk and jazz–“sounds like Dr. John meets The Band at Bruce Springsteen’s house.” Headlining the evening will be the Tom Gullion Quintet, offering a wide variety of jazz sounds deeply rooted in the American jazz tradition.

Appetizing local food will be available for purchase such as: wood-fired pizza, crêpes, sandwiches, strawberry shortcake, and locally-produced sodas.

Fest-goers are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for their comfort. Eckhart Park is located two blocks West of Main Street in Viroqua, next to the Vernon County Courthouse. More information about the Festival is available on the web at http://driftlessmusicfestival.com or by calling 608-637-6110. Admission is free.

Driftless Music Festival would like to thank the major sponsors of this event:
Viroqua Food Co-op, Organic Valley, METCO, Viroqua Area Rotary Club, Charles Knower and Patricia DeMark Knower, and WDRT.
