Welcome to the Wild Hog in the Woods Coffeehouse

Wild Hog Presents a Virtual Concert with

Chris Powers

Friday, April 29, 2022 at 7:30pm CT

Chris Powers, a native of Philadelphia, picked up the guitar at the age of 14, and within a few years knew the chords to every Beatles song. After attending Beloit College, he settled in Madison, and began organizing string bands,including the string-jazz trio Nobody's Bizness and the long-lived Bluegrass Survivors. He toured Wisconsin with the UW-Extension's Heritage Ensemble, mixing folk music with American History, and played guitar in the orchestra of several Madison Theater productions.

He developed and teaches group adult guitar courses with themes like "Jazz Chords and Swing", "Fingerstyle Blues" and "Bill Monroe Bluegrass Ensemble", and teaches private lessons, too. Friday mornings, you can hear him on WORT-FM hosting "MudAcres Bluegrass Special".

He and fiddler Shauncey Ali regularly moonlight with the Old Tin Can String Band.
