Third Thursday: Hicks With Picks and the Foucalt Brothers
September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Crystal Theatre is digging into the rich deposits of local talent and bringing talented artists from our neighborhoods to a new audience in a full concert format. The third Thursday of the months of July through October will feature one or more artists of similar styles and musical genres.
On Thursday, September 16 at 7 p.m., The focus is on Yooper-grass! . Hicks With Picks has been performing Yooperbilly covers of bluegrass, folk, and rock classics since 2008 to the hand-clapping delight of northwoods audiences. All three “Hicks” contribute vocals to the harmony. Marc Ralston plays bass, Jeff Dohl and Jack Hudson play 6-string guitar; Dohl also plays banjitar.
The acoustic-oriented Foucalt brother duo has a knack for taking a song and putting their own homespun spin on it. They present a pleasing organic blend with tasteful interpretations of old time and contemporary songs. Roy plays lead guitar and adds a sweet vibe to his solo work. Elder brother Paul usually takes lead on vocals while playing guitar and resonator (“dobro”) guitar. The style fits the label “Americana” as they move smoothly between a wide variety of music from classic country tunes to jazzy ’40s classics.
Third Thursday will be taking a break over the hunting/holiday season and return in January. To suggest local musicians that you would love to see as part of the Third Thursday series please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are only at the door: $10/$5 students available only at the box office.
