Let the Twa Dogs transport you to the pubs of Scotland and Ireland! Based in Madison, they perform traditional Celtic music. Their original all-acoustic arrangements include toe-tapping jigs, reels, strathspeys, airs, waltzes and folk songs. The Twa Dogs combine classical music training with a love of folk music and a casual, down-to-earth approach to performance. ​Named after a poem by Robert Burns, The Twa Dogs means simply "the two dogs."

7:30pm - 9:30pm KG & The Ranger Category: Concert
KGandRanger.jpg
Discovering KG & The Ranger is like turning back the pages of time as they transport you back to the days of the dime matinees and the Silver Screen heroes like Roy Rogers, Sons of the Pioneers and Gene Autry. There is no doubt about their “mission” to keep these wonderful songs alive. They are known for their creative harmony arrangements plus award-winning harmony yodeling. From familiar songs to the less well-known rare gems, they give them all their own unique sound.

Their “musical trail” together started in Madison WI in 1986 when Karen Gogolick was a successful jewelry designer with a passion for folk and early country music. She played guitar, bass and banjo, hosted a local radio show, and began collecting any song she could find about cowboys and cowgirls.

That same year Rick Roltgen was working at a local credit union and playing bass in a country/bluegrass band. Rick always had music in his life in some way, and honed his harmonizing and humor skills in a barbershop quartet. He had grown up with Gene Autry and Roy Rogers for heroes and loved their music.

One summer night, Karen brought her bass to play for a Wild Hog in the Woods Barn Dance. Rick showed up with his bass, too, and as they say, “the rest is history”. They started playing together in an old-timey string band where their shared love of cowboy songs quickly became obvious. They also started singing together as a duo, and in 1989 they married and headed down the trail together as “KG & The Ranger”. Their first official show as KG & The Ranger was at the Wild Hog in April of that year.

Whether being funny or serious, nostalgic or original, they always put on a great show! Awards include Western Music Association "Outstanding Entertainer - Duo" of 2010 and three-time "Harmony Yodeling Champions”.

“KG & The Ranger sing with charm and style, they yodel spectacularly, choose great material with unerring taste, and write fine new songs as well. Their growing and continuing success is well deserved.” ~ Ranger Doug, Riders In The Sky

“KG & The Ranger have a sweet genuine quality" to their harmonies, and their CD Moonlight Trails "is like a late night session where everyone is playing for the pure joy of it" ~ Suze Spencer-Marshall (niece of Sons of the Pioneers' founding member Tim Spencer

Memorial Community Sing-Along tribute for Mike Tuten, with Annie Patterson and Charlie King performing and leading the sing-along. The Madison Folk Music Society is co-hosting this event with the Wild Hog to honor Mike who passed away in August.

MikeTuten.jpg
Mike Tuten, was a staunch supporter of everything folk, served as president of MadFolk for a decade, was the “Betty” in the Oak Apple Morris Team, and more recently had hosted well attended house concerts in his basement, which he had redesigned for that purpose. And… he loved to sing!

AnniePatterson.jpg
Annie Patterson, song leader extraordinaire, folk performer, and jazz vocalist, has been leading singing for hope and change around the globe for over 30 years with Rise Up Singing and Rise Again, the popular songbooks she created with her husband, Peter Blood. Copies of the songbooks and CDs will be available for sale, or bring your own copies, though they will teach most choruses from the stage. www.riseupandsing.org

CharlieKing.jpg
Charlie King has been making music for more than 40 years, initially as part of Bright Morning Star, and more recently on his own, including house concerts at Mike Tuten’s. His songs include topical parodies, and both he and Annie sing songs of social significance - with great choruses! www.charlieking.org

The last time Annie was in town, for the launch of Rise Again, there was standing room only at a larger venue, so get there early. Admission is free for this memorial sing. Phillup the Pig and MadFolk’s fretless guitar will gratefully accept any donations left over from your CD and songbook purchases.

Join the Hog and MadFolk in honoring Mike Tuten, a stalwart of the Madison Folk Music scene who has gone on to join the Angel Band.
