 The Hiawatha Music Co-op announces the addition of the “Hiawatha Warm Up”, a Wednesday Night Concert Series to their 2015 Event Calendar.

The Concert Series will feature a variety of traditional music and dance performed by by local and area bands. 

“Hiawatha Warm Up” will take place each month on the 3rd Wednesday at the Ore Dock Brewing Company from 7:00-9:00pm, starting with Wednesday, February 18, 2015.

The first band to be featured is The Quill Pickers. They are an Old-Time string band from the South Shore of Lake Superior. Since 2002, they've performed rural American music and played for barn dances throughout the Midwest. Clancy Ward leads the band with lively Midwestern fiddle tunes. He's joined by Laura Idle, multi-instrumentalist and flat-foot clogger, and Sarah York, on banjo and guitar. Sarah and Laura are also experienced dance callers, and will get the dance hall moving to the tune of the fiddle.
