Sam Payne and Friends 7pm-8pm
Sam Payne is a distinguished teacher, folk musician, and host of the popular Urbana Hootenanny. Often collaborating with some of the finest acoustic musicians in Urbana – Champaign, he delivers a unique celebration of traditional song that’s sure to please the ears.
Bones, Jugs, N Harmony 8:30-10pm
Bones, jug, xylophone, kazoos, steel pan, resonator guitar, banjo, double bass, drums, all
sorts of noise makers. These are just some of the instruments Bones Jugs N Harmony use to
conjure up their eclectic acoustic sound. A frenzy of frivolity, a marvel of merriment. It’s Frank Zappa meets Spike Jones, it’s Looney Tunes meets Nintendo. It’s seriously silly. It’s a party. It’s for dancing, for listening, for enjoying. It’s for adults. It’s for kids. It’s for everyone. In short, it’s just a load of fun.
