Folk at 408: The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers & Kyle Megna
March 3rd, 8:00pm
Tickets:$10

“Folk at 408” will feature Wisconsin’s singer/songwriter community of musicians. Money raised from this event will give community members in the area who are financially less fortunate a chance to experience all that the arts have to offer through the “Arts for Everyone” scholarship program.

The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers perform original songs and tunes inspired by the classic hillbilly, country-duo, and old-time musical traditions–and also mines this same repertoire for forgotten gems that deserve to be heard again.

Their 2015 album, “Ocooch Mountain Home,” (their second), has received high praise from the likes of fROOTS, Bluegrass Today, and Country Music People UK.

Based in Soldiers Grove, WI, the Sapsuckers (Nikki Grossman, guitar, fiddle, and vocals; Joe Hart, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) perform frequent concerts, as well as square and contra dances, and they are known for the light touch and sense of humor they bring to their performance.

Kyle Megna of Kyle Megna & The Monsoons acoustic:
Kyle Megna and the Monsoons (2017 Wisconsin Area Music Industry Alternative Rock/Rock Artist of the year) is an original Wisconsin band with an ever-growing following locally and beyond. Touring the Mid-West and South-East the Monsoons are a tight-knit group of accomplished, charismatic musicians with diverse backgrounds, these guys know how to have fun while always keeping it professional. Best seen live, they feed off the vibe of the crowd as well as each other. Their “dark-indie-blues-folk-rock feel” is a magnetic force that’s ever-charged with surges of creativity and artistic experimentation. Fused with a healthy dose of spontaneity and humor, Kyle Megna and the Monsoons channel can’t-get-enough energy that’s good for the soul.
