The Wheeler Opera House to present a free show and film screening with Ben Sollee. Ben is a Kentucky-born musician, composer, and filmmaker who mixes banjo, guitar, and mandolin along with percussion and unusual cello techniques. Excerpts from his documentary, Ditch The Van, that chronicles his cross-country bicycle tours, will be screened before his performance. This show is free but guests should RSVP to reserve a seat.
Friday night, Corb Lund storms the stage with his alt-country sound. Named one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” by Rolling Stone, Corb is not to be missed if you love country music. On Saturday night, Big Sam’s Funky Nation bring New Orlean’s funk to The Temporary. This 5-piece ensemble mixes funk, rock and roll, hip-hop, and jazz into the same pot, gluing everything together with a healthy dose of brass.
