Live Music: Grandpa’s Elixir

September 17 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Formed in 2011, Grandpa’s Elixir has been playing its unique mix of old-time music, country blues, jug band and fiddle tunes at dances, taverns, community centers, co-ops and private parties throughout South Central Wisconsin. The members of the Madison Wisconsin string-band trio met each other by playing music together. Peter Werts (guitar, banjo) and David Stabbe (mandolin, fiddle) met at a jam session at a Minnesota Bluegrass and Oldtime Music Association festival in 2004. Peter moved to Madison in 2009 and soon met Brian Hirsh (bass) at a local bluegrass jam; and previously Dave and Brian played together before in other bluegrass ensembles.
Bring some cash money to throw in the hat to keep this wonderful group of musicians doing what they do. Suggested contribution $5 or more.
Make a day of it. The LaCrosse Distillery will have a featured Grandpa’s Elixir cocktail made with their special Rock n Rye that will send you back in time. FRFF is bringing spectacular shorts to raise some $$ and awareness of their festival in Winona. Sound and video is supreme. You aren’t going to find a better spot to appreciate some creativity and hang with good peeps.
Kitchen closes at 7. FRFF will have POPCORN for sale!!
Grandpa’s Elixir has an ongoing performance the first Monday of the month at the Malt House in Madison.
