Budget Vote This Week: Rhetoric or What’s Right

Take it from my friend Rosanne Rosannadanna, it's alway something.

Music, Music, Music

"Dizzy" - Joyann Parker Band - Live Video - Soul Music

It's summer in the Chippewa Valley, which can only mean one thing - Music Festivals.  There will be no Eaux Claires this summer, but that won't mean there's any shortage of music.  Two are coming up in the next few weeks, and they're some of my personal favorites.

The Blue Ox Music Festival runs June 13-15, bringing you some of the best in  Bluegrass and related genres. This year's lineup includes Pert Near Sandstone, Trampled by Turtles, The Del McCoury Band, and a whole lot more.
