 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.  The next event will take place on May 20th with local favorite, the All Strings Considered. 



All Strings Considered has a primary focus on traditional old-time instrumental and vocal music of the Appalachian region. The group's sound is a blend of Jamie Kitchel on fiddle, Rochelle Schuster on hammered dulcimer and mountain dulcimer, Phil Watts on guitar and banjo, Annette Watts on autoharp and Maggie Morgan on bass.  All Strings Considered will get your feet tapping to those great traditional fiddle tunes then soothe your day with a gentle waltz or tell a story with an Appalachian song.

 Admission is $5.00 for Co-op Members and $7.00 for Non Members.  Youth ages 13-17 $3.00 and children 12 and under are FREE.   Memberships will not be sold at the Event.

For information about the Co-op please visit our website www.hiawathamusic.org or our Facebook page
