The TrueGrass Trio with special guest Molly Otis.
Bay City Bohemian Hall
Saturday January 25, 2020
5:00 pm to 10:00 pm
The TrueGrass Trio with special guest Molly Otis will be performing for Bohemian Fest on Saturday January 25th, 2020 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. They will be joined by Hoff Stevens from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm for this fundraising event to help with the renovation of the historic Bay City Bohemian Hall (319 11th Ave E) in Ashland, Wisconsin. Admission is $10 and will include a bar and raffle.
Shortly after the end of the 19th Century, Czech immigrants, eager to create a place where they could go to celebrate their community, founded a fraternal hall in 1906 that came to be known as “Bohemian Hall.” The Bohemian Hall on 11th Ave East in Ashland has been a fixture in the community for generations - polka dances, pancake breakfasts, and celebrations of every sort have filled this hall with friends and family. Ask anyone around these parts if they've got a fond memory of the Bohemian, and chances are they do. A non-profit group is currently working to save the building for continued community benefit and enjoyment.
TrueGrass specializes in reviving music of the old-time masters, adapting modern material to the bluegrass idiom, and creating original songs and new tunes in the traditional stringband style.
All veterans of the Lake Superior Big Top Chautuaqua, with over 100 years of combined professional performing experience, they take a traditional music recipe, add a pinch of influence from rock, blues, jazz, and gospel, spice it with experienced showmanship, and cook up a steady diet of fun to engage your audience on and off stage.
TrueGrass features Tom Draughon from Ashland WI on guitar, fiddle & vocals, Bruce Qualey from Cable WI on bass & vocals, and Jed Malischke from Spooner WI on banjo, resophonic guitar & vocals.
They perform together and with various guest musicians throughout NW Wisconsin and the surrounding four state areas. Whether you have a small venue or large concert hall, a one act show or a multi band festival, TrueGrass can also help you organize, promote, and stage manage your event.
