Caitlin Vitale-Sullivan

.
CaitlinVitaleSullivan

Growing up in the high desert wilderness of Idaho, Caitlin Vitale-Sullivan developed a love of nature and of music. Time spent in Norway as a Rotary Exchange student led to an interest in folk music around the world. She was able to blend her interests when she received a Fulbright grant that enabled her to travel to Sweden, where she studied the connection between Kulning, (Swedish cow-calling music) and landscape. In her youth, Caitlin was classically trained as a violinist. This training, and her interest in Swedish and Norwegian music led her to receive a Madfolk/Schneyer scholarship to receive instruction on playing the Hardanger d'Amore, a unique fiddle that includes five drone strings. Caitlin's performance at the Wild Hog is sure to be entertaining as well as informative.

From the sing-along catchiness of "Must Have Chocolate" to the unexpected philosophical insights of "Your Father's Underwear", Doug puts his finger on what's terrifyingly funny.about our world and just keeps probing. He has a way of making you laugh AND making you sing. In performance, Doug moves between piano and guitar and in one number actually plays both at once!

After living in Madison for many years, Doug relocated to England for 8 years, where he performed with the bluegrass band Appalachia and the Old Time string band The Buffalo Gals, holding down the low end on stand-up bass. Doug currently lives in the Twin Cities area. You can listen toDoug on Doug's youtube site

.
35 years ago Karen Gogolick and Rick Roltgen hitched their wagon to a dream and started their musical ride as husband-and-wife duo, KG and The Ranger. Over those years they have performed classic country music in 25 states and Italy, received awards for their harmony singing and yodeling, released 8 albums and just plain had a ton of fun. Their show always brings back memories of cowboy heroes like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. Their very first gig together was at the Hog in April 1989, so what better place to celebrate this milestone! Their daughter Angie Roltgen will join them with her wonderful harmony singing. There are always some surprises at their shows, but one thing will be no surprise-,the music will be great.
