7:30pm - 9:30pm Molly Maguires Category: Concert
Singer/songwriters - and cousins - Sara and Angie Roltgen return to the Hog as The Molly Maguires once again! In 1993, this duet performed their first official concert at the Hog and began a run of performances around Wisconsin throughout the '90's & 2000's.

Please join us as we welcome them back to the stage for this reunion concert. Bringing a wide variety of diverse folk music with guitars as accompaniment, the pair will charm you with their tight harmonies, blended voices and engaging songs.

Performing both original songs and cover songs that you know and love, they draw their inspiration from musicians such as Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Arlo Guthrie, John Denver and many more.

This is a concert you don't want to miss!

This band has been around for over nine years. Their playing and singing is infused with their love for this classic brand of American music.

6:00pm - 10:00pm 40th Birthday Concert Jam Category: Concert
Planning is underway for our birthday celebration. We are inviting some of our early performers and current performers to take turns on stage, invite others to play with them, and to jam together. So far we have Roxanne Neat, KG and the Ranger, Pete Houser and Jamie Hascall and Lisa Johnson. More to be announced.

This is an extended evening with three sets of music broken up by frequent changes of whose on stage. Free pizza and birthday cake will be available. Contributions to Phillup the Pig will be considered contributions to the Hog instead of the performers. Admission is free tonight.

Also still in the works is a breakfast brunch Saturday morning following the concert. We expect some of our past members visiting from out of town will appreciate a chance to mingle and talk with those still living in the Madison area.

The Hog's first night open in 1978 was on the 30th of November. How fitting that the 30th is the day we get to celebrate this year!
