Wheelhouse was formed fourteen years ago by two sisters, Laura and Diane Swingen, and their long-time musical friend, Joe Hromco. They perform music that is fun to play and interesting to hear. Influenced by bluegrass and what is sometimes called “alt-folk,” their music focuses on vocal harmonies and playful musicianship. The band also has an alternate personality, stretching into rock and danceable numbers.
Happy Hour! Purchase snacks and beverages before the show, 6:00 pm. Concert begins at 7:00 pm.
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple circle dances, or moving meditations, using sacred phrases from many of the world's wisdom traditions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism. This event will be led by Michael Sheehan and Michelle Sparks-Smith of Moving Meditations.
