The FogHorn Stringband

May 30, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets: $10 adults, $5 children

Live at the Tiller Arts Center, watch a stellar performance by the FogHorn Stringband! They play the old way, the way you’d have heard stringbands play on Southern radio stations back in the 1930s. They don’t fancy up the music to make it more modern, instead they reach into the heart of the songs, pulling out the deep emotions that made them so enduring in the first place. For more information, contact Eric Greiter at 260-496-8975 and visit FogHornStringband.com.
