Stoughton,WI53701United States

Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a dusky alto and a 1930’s Recording King guitar. Her breakout record Reckless Skyline features songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk. Produced by Jeffrey Foucault, Reckless Skyline garnered glowing praise from NPR, and The San Francisco Chronicle lauded Canty’s, “casually devastating voice and unshakable poise,” and her “easy way with folk, blues and country motifs.” Canty won the 2015 Telluride Troubadour songwriting contest, and…

Stoughton Opera House, 381 East Main
Stoughton,WI53701United States

Five years ago, Hal Ketchum packed up his guitars and left Nashville, turning his back on a successful, 20+ year career in country music. He'd already sold more than 5 million albums, racking up a half-dozen Top 10 hits along the way. But Ketchum was exhausted. Try as he might, though, he couldn't stop his musical wheels from spinning.

Stoughton Opera House, 381 East Main
Stoughton,WI53701United States

Moving from exuberant stepdancer to fiddle wunderkind and silver-voiced singer, Verch has never been content to stand still. Her victories in Canada’s Open Old Time Fiddle Championship and Grand Masters Fiddling Competition made her the first woman to take both of the country’s top contests. On her tenth album The Newpart, Verch digs deep into songs and tunes from the era before the often-mined mid-century heyday of bluegrass and folk. Harkening back to vaudeville and beyond, Verch and her fellow…

Ray Wylie Hubbard

Fri May 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Stoughton Opera House, 381 East Main
Stoughton,WI53701United States

At 69, Ray Wylie Hubbard’s post-psycho-country approach to drifter’s rock is more raw-boned and rough-hewn than ever. Guitars hiss, sting, and slash, and the haunted, tribal beats underscore a voice of parched earth. The Texas original continues to write, record, perform, produce, tour, and score movies with the same wily spirit trademarked in the early 70s. Since then, he’s released 17 albums, including his latest, The Ruffian’s Misfortune. The reviews describe Ray Wylie as “one of the most strikingly original…

Sat May 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Stoughton Opera House, 381 East Main
Stoughton,WI53701United States

Virtuoso composer and lead guitarist Gonzalo Bergara mixes a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina, forging his own style of progressive Gypsy Jazz. His music exists in a way that very little music does. He has lavished such care on every phrase, built each arrangement with such lapidary precision and pared away anything extraneous. Bergara began playing professionally at age 16 in Buenos Aires. By 17 he was already fronting his own blues trio…
