The TrueGrass Trio
Chequamegon MTB Festival, Cable WI
Friday, Sept 13, 2019
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
The TrueGrass Trio will be playing for the 37th Annual Chequamegon MTB Festival. The MTB Festival presented by Trek means fat tire racing and fat tire fun. Each year in mid-September, thousands of mountain bikers descend on the towns of Cable and Hayward in northwestern Wisconsin to take on the off road bicycle tests of endurance and agility offered throughout the weekend.
You’ll find The TrueGrass Trio at the pre-race bib pickup area in the Great Hall at the American Birkebeiner Trailhead near Cable WI on Friday September 13, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. 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 string band 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.
