Brothers Burn Mountain - Singer/Songwriter/Indie Folk Duo (8:00 pm)

Brothers Burn Mountain - Singer/Songwriter/Indie Folk Duo
Minocqua Brewing Company,238 Lakeshore Dr,Minocqua
Saturday, March 7, 2015 8:00 pm

Listening to The Brothers Burn Mountain, one senses that their music is spirited out of a “fierce” discipline. Their songs have a deliberate andmasterful quality, each distinct, yet part of a whole that is greaterthan any one song. For Ryan and Jesse Dermody, songwriting is adiscipline and music is their life. Their eating, sleeping, waking andwalking all conspire to ignite their creative fire.

It is deliberate. Observing them, they seem immersed intheir own world of rhythms, melodies, words and rhymes. Speaking, attimes, rarely - even awkwardly - they appear as if seeking cues of asubtle, natural, even spiritual kind. It may be this juxtaposition ofinward discipline, coupled with a profound
openness that leads them tocompose songs that embody a paradoxical nature.

The music of The Brothers Burn Mountain is simple, yetcomplex. It is original and new, yet hauntingly familiar. They createsongs that seem to have always been. Removing distractions from theirlives, they are keen to remove sounds that are not the song, like asculptor who carves away the stone that is not part of the vision he is working to reveal. The music of The Brothers Burn Mountain is destined to stand the test of time.

Ryan and Jesse grew up as brothers, but it was around1997 that they began working on music together. Over the years,backpacking for months at a time in Europe - France, in particular -they have written songs marked by sunrises over the Mediterranean Seaand fields and hills and smells of nature. Spending time in nature feeds their music “inspired”, as Jesse once said, “by the imperfectwaverings of nature.”

In 2007, The Brothers Burn Mountain released The Bloodof a Thousand Clouds, followed in 2008 by Wild Cat Road. These firsttwo CD’s have given us a glimpse into their unusual songwriting talentand are developing a group of fans who are very interested in “whatcomes next?”.

Minocqua Winter Park invites our friends and neighbors of the Lakeland area for the second annual Community Appreciation Day, an open house and community-wide celebration. And regardless of whether you live near or far, all are welcome to visit and partake this fun event at Winter Park.

Spring is almost here, and who wouldn’t like a bit of fun before the snow is all gone? With snow still around, Winter Park is just the place for that, and we’re going to share our trails, tubing hill, and ice pond with our local community free of charge!

Lakeland Community Appreciation Day allows us hearty Northwoods folk to escape the thralls of winter with a carnival-like afternoon!

Join us 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Sunday, March 8, 2014. Once you check-in at the chalet frond desk, enjoy snow tubing on Squirrel Hill, including snow tube rent and lift access, at no cost. The fees for our cross-country ski and snowshoe trail passes will be waived. And Chip Wulff Memorial Ice Pond will continue to be free for ice skating with ice skate rentals.

Ski our 5.5km Cookie Trail Loop on easy trails to meet skiers, play games, and learn fun nature facts at the trail shelter on X-C Express. Warm-up to a cup of tea or cocoa at the Tea House, accessible by skis or snowshoes.

Not a skier? We are expanding our grant- and donation-funded Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free program to 40 residents of Oneida, Vilas, Price, or Iron County. First-timers and near-beginner skiers will receive free cross-country ski equipment rental and a free one-hour lesson taught by members of the Professional Ski Instructors of America. Contact the chalet to register for this offering: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or (715) 356-3309.

Join us for this last hurrah of winter play, games, family activities, and more. Plus, many local businesses are donating prizes that we will raffle-off throughout the day.

Inside the chalet, Winter Park will be accepting non-perishable food donations for the Lakeland Pantry and cash donations for the Minocqua Winter Park Trail Fund. Donations are not required to partake in any of the afternoon’s events, but they are greatly appreciated.

Feeding LeRoy (8:00 pm)

Feeding LeRoy
Minocqua Brewing Company,238 Lakeshore Dr,Minocqua
Friday, March 13, 2015 8:00 pm

Feeding LeRoy came out of the collaboration of Sonja and Lee's original songs, blending into a unique project, with their songwriting and vocal harmonies as the focus of this bands sound. It's kind of a family affair now, with brother Luke stepping in on the harmonica and long time friend and bassist, Adam Staupe on the upright bass, both adding their vocal harmonies, creating somewhat of a gospel undertone that acts as it's own instrument in the band.

You can find this foursome around the twin ports of Duluth, MN and Superior, WI, but they have also recently taken to the open road, bringing this up north sound to new cities across the nation. Think Gram Parsons and Emmylou meets the Jayhawks... its country music at its core, it's fun, its original,
it's Feeding LeRoy.

THE CHIPPER EXPERIENCE: WHERE COMEDY & MAGIC COLLIDE (7:00 pm)

THE CHIPPER EXPERIENCE: WHERE COMEDY & MAGIC COLLIDE
Campanile Center For the Arts, 141 Milwaukee Street
Sunday,March 22, 2015 7:00 pm

What would you get if you combined Robin Williams, Rip Taylor and David Copperfield all into one body????

Introducing………The Chipper Experience!

Award-winning comedian & magician, Chipper Lowell, has been described as an "artistic cyclone of talent and comedy" by the press. He has also been described as "lazy when it comes to cleaning the house," by his wife. The red head's true "skills" can usually be found onstage instead, doling out witty remarks, presenting bizarre feats of original magic, adlibbing with audience members who can't stop laughing, attempting pointless juggling stunts, pulling a seemingly endless barrage of unusual thing-a-ma-bobs and gadgets out of his prop trunks, and in short, creating a wonderful evening of high-energy laughs and amazement for all those in attendance. (How's THAT for a run-on sentence? You're welcome!)

For over 20 years, Chipper has been bringing his odd brand of infectiously amusing mayhem to audiences around the world at performing arts centers, theaters, cruise ships, and casino showrooms. His tours have taking him throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Mexico.

As a boy, Chipper was literally born and raised on traveling circuses and large scale arena shows with his show business parents. His father was a professional clown with Ringling Bros and his mother performed as an aerialist working high above the crowds. By age 17, Chipper was creating his own shows, parodying many of the variety arts he grew up with, while also creating some eye-popping magic routines of his own along the way.

Within a few years, people began to take notice -- Thankfully, in a good way. Chipper quickly racked up an impressive list of theater and casino bookings and never looked back. He has received some cool honors and awards along the way, like "Comedy Magician of the Year!" (twice), "Specialty Act of the Year!", two nominations for "Stage Magician of the Year", and was listed among the "Top Funniest Magicians Performing Today" by MAGIC Magazine. Whoop-de-do. : )

In addition to touring, Chipper has also produced several comedy CDs and recordings for Rhino Records, including "Comic Relief IV, V & VI," "National Lampoon's Radio Hour Anthology," and "The American Comedy Box". His writing credits include "Comic Strip Live", the feature film "SIX", and "The Magic of David Copperfield" television special.

An Evening With Rebecca And Kuba (7:00 pm)

An Evening with Rebecca and Kuba
Lakeland Union High School, Hwy 70 W, Minocqua
Thursday, March 26,  2015 7:00 pm

With successful solo endeavors under both their belts, Rebecca and Kuba decided to do the unthinkable: a variety show with country, jazz, show tunes and classical music. It could never work. But it did. Still performing their solo acts, their combo show has gone on to become a huge hit with audiences everywhere from performing arts venues in the U.S. to jazz clubs in Poland, let alone on many of the top cruise lines in the world. Their repertoire of diverse styles of music combined with their chemistry together onstage have been delighting audiences for years with no sign of letting up. Seldom performing the exact show twice while constantly adding new material has made them an act that is fun to follow as well as easy to count on to be an engaging show.

Individual Concert Tickets are available at the door on the night of the concert:

Adults - $20  

Students - $5

All concerts begin at 7:00 pm.  Doors open at 6:30







Contact Info : If you would like more information regarding our special level programs or help in purchasing tickets, please contact: Phil or Nancy Strand at 715-356-5645 or 715-367-1271 Url: http://www.lakelandperformingarts.org

Their lively repertoire flirts with folk, bluegrass, and jazz from the '40s, and their irresistible voices never fail to charm. With equal parts city and country, highway and home, wistfulness and glee, the Good Lovelies will have you kicking off your shoes and dancing in the aisle.
