Join Tom Draughon on Friday, March 15th 5-8p.m. for Celtic music, food specials and drinks at The Sandbar in Ashland WI. It’s a small place so reservations are recommended 715.685.2583. The unique location and place on the shore of Lake Superior has inspired us. The name Chequamegon is of Ojibwe origin. It is derived from chagaouamigoung, a French transliteration of the Ojibwe Zhaagawaamikong or jagawamikiong, meaning a "sand bar place; at the sand bar; strip of land running into a body of water". Gather at the Sandbar and enjoy common food done uncommonly well in a beautiful lakeside settings.

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.
