The Barley Jacks

Schroeder Town Hall | Schroeder MN

The North Shore Music Association heads down the shore to host the acoustic-yet-electrifying Barley Jacks on June 8.

Performing original vocals and jaw-dropping instrumentals in a spirit of excitement and fun, these masters of the fiddle, guitar, bass, and drum meld their divergent backgrounds of blues and bluegrass, classical and Celtic, R&B and bebop and inspire each other to create something entirely new.

Frontman, fiddler, and mandolinist Brian Wicklund are joined by Mike Cramer, guitar; Keith Yanes, bass; and Joel Arpin, percussion. Virtuosity, magic, and a little danger combine to make every performance unique.

Tickets are $20 adults, $5 kids ages 18 & under. For sale at event only, cash or check. There will be ample seating, plus room to dance!
