WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Guitarist Jay Craggs has shared the stage, opened for or recorded with musicians as varied as Wynton Marsalis, Buddy Rich and Kansas. He’s also a self-described technology geek and has done sound engineering and studio work for dozens of performers, including Rush, Prince and David Bowie.
He still has a recording studio in the basement of his Whitewater home, but these days, he’s the facilities coordinator at the James R. Connor University Center at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the school where he earned a degree in music education, and teaches an occasional class in audio recording for the communications department. He also plays with Cold Sweat and the Brew City Horns, an eight-piece band performing around Milwaukee, Chicago, Green Bay and Madison.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Music takes center stage on the village square when the East Troy Bluegrass Festival kicks up its heels Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 10 and Sept. 11.
The East Troy festival is among one of four fun events planned next weekend. There’s also Darien Corn Fest, the Taste of Lake Geneva and the Whitewater Main Street Festival to squeeze into your social calendar.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Few things in life are original anymore. The cellphone seems to be moving to our wrist, which would make wearing a watch back in vogue. Movies seem to relive the heroes of our past (or at least our parents). There is, however, an artist in Lake Geneva who infuses his own style into familiar songs, making them livelier and new again.
Dan Trudell has been playing the piano during all of this century and in the latter half of the one before that.
2015 World Music Festival at UW-Whitewater. The montage of musical variety started off with La Chiva Gantiva. La Chiva Gantiva plays an explosive blend of Afro-Colombian rhythms including rock, afro-beat, and funk.
