Wild Hog Presents a Streamed Live Virtual Concert with
Friday, October 23, 2020 at 7:30pm
Chris Powers, a native of Philadelphia, PA, picked up the guitar at the age of 14, and within a few years knew the chords to every Beatles song. After graduating from Beloit College, he settled in Madison and began organizing a series of successful string bands. He showed off his mandolin chops with the string-jazz trio Nobody’s Bizness and the long-lived Bluegrass Survivors.
He toured Wisconsin for many years 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.
On Friday mornings you can hear him on WORT-FM 89.9 radio hosting the “MudAcres Bluegrass Special.” When not constrained by a Pandemic, he plays guitar with the award-winning class-grass ensemble Graminy and plays multiple instruments with the Old Tin Can String Band.
His humor is expressed with a deadpan style that few can match. Chris prerecorded this concert on the Hog's stage without an audience. Don't miss this opportunity! Visit his web site.
