Gandy Dancer Festival

Sat August 17 @ 11:00 am - 9:00 pm

$10 – $15

We’re ecstatic about the lineup of bands we have for the festival this year. As always, the GDF will feature a diverse variety of Bluegrass, Americana, and Folk music. Headliners this year are none other than Milwaukee’s own, Chicken Wire Empire (6:30pm start). The GDF is fortunate to bring these rising stars of bluegrass to Mazomanie. Their mix of progressive and traditional bluegrass music will for sure be a crowd pleaser. Warming up the crowd and the stage for them will be 2018 GDF favorite, The Kevin Prater Band (recognized by the Kentucky House of Representatives for their traditional bluegrass music). Preceding them will be The High 48s from Minnesota. We’re pleased to have the High 48s return to Mazomanie after their last performance at the GDF in 2014. Their railway music catalog is second to none! Before them will be Nashville’s Williamson Branch. Making their first tour in WI, this family group sings harmonies only years of living together could produce. Plus, their world class Appalachian clog dancing will bring something special and new to our festival. Another GDF veteran will grace the stage before Williamson Branch. Art Stevenson & High Water are verified Wisconsin Bluegrass legends. You can’t think of bluegrass in WI without thinking of them, and we’re honored to have them return to our little village. Starting out the day at 11am will be Best of Madison-Bronze Bluegrass/Folk winners, No Name String Band. This feet in the grass, traditional Americana group is the perfect way to kick off the GDF.

Please join us for a day of music, fun, and food in Mazomanie for an experience you won’t forget! We can’t wait to show you what we have to offer. For more information about the festival please find us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) or at gandydancerfestival.org.
