  • Winter Concert Series - Buckthorn Ramblers


    Host: Hop Harvest & Vine
    Fee: Free

    The Buckthorn Ramblers play bluegrass music, starting with the music of Bill Monroe and continuing to the present day. They enjoy composing new music as well as creating new versions of traditional material, using vocal harmonies to tell stories, and playing the foot-stomping instrumental tunes. The Buckthorn Ramblers are a hard hitting, mandolin heavy band (and in fact all of the members are mandolin players, while some of them happen to play other instruments in the current scenario). One of the features that sets the band apart is the use of two mandolins, often trading solos and licks, and at times playing together in harmony. How is the audience affected? Some will smile, tap their foot, and sway or step to the music. For children and the young at heart, it often becomes an all-out, no-holds-barred, bouncing and bumping dance scene. The Buckthorn Ramblers look like a band should. They dress for success and aim to please, while maintaining artistic integrity and avoiding trips to trendy boutiques or the local farm supply store, as the case may be. James Anders, mandolin: This young man is full of ideas, and as a mandolin player, he fires them off with machine gun speed and precision. Bam! Kevin Christianson, mandolin: Kevin is dedicated to upholding and furthering the tradition of the bluesy, punchy bluegrass mandolin sound. Pow! In many ways, Kevin is the driving force behind the band. Eric Langford; guitar, fiddle, and bandleader Brad Astor, bass: The Buckthorn Ramblers are blessed to have Brad on bass, borrowed from the acclaimed Madison-area band “Sortin the Mail”. If the audience is lucky, they will be treated to one of Brad’s original compositions, “A Little Goes a Long Way”.

  • St. Paddy's Eve Concert - Ceol Cairde


    Host: Hop Harvest & Vine
    Fee: Free

    This group of Milwaukee area musicians has been performing traditional Irish music since the spring of 1989. Ceol Cairde has its roots in the 1988 Irish Fest Summer School, a week of classes held the week before Irish Fest. Classes are taught in Irish music, dance, language, and theater, as well as other Irish cultural activities for all ages. Deciding one week a year of Irish music was not enough, they began playing in each other’s living rooms, learning more and more tunes. With the windows open during one summer day, a passer-by heard the delightful sounds of jigs and reels and asked the group to perform at her wedding. Milwaukee Irish Fest, Holiday Folk Fair, the Canadian Carrousel of Nations, and many other special events followed that special wedding performance. Ceol Cairde members share the energy and spirit of the traditional Irish music they enjoy so much. The irresistible blending of their instruments provides the unique sound that is the “Music of Friends.”

    Tom Gill from Rhythm For Unity will be hosting an organic rhythm jam from 6:00 – 8:00pm with hand drums, percussion instruments and likely a few surprises! Feel free to bring your own instrument (store bought or home-made) or use some of the extras that will be on hand. No experience required! Good Harvest owner Joe Nolan reached out to invite local drummers to share organic rhythms in this incredible space. The food (natural), beverages (alcoholic and non-) and ambience are amazing!
