Five instruments, four voices, and one fancy microphone. Soggy Prairie been working on this bluegrass thing since 2002, and they’ve almost figured it out. They bring a high-energy attitude to new, traditional, and original Bluegrass tunes. Kodey Feiner brings a powerful unique lead vocal sound and a strong right hand strum on the guitar. Jim Kvalheim proves to be a driving force on the mandolin, and has been sharing harmonies with Kodey for over fifteen years. Newcomer Erin Barnard, a classically trained violist, brings a strong fiddle sound, and fits in nicely on the top end of the harmonies. Kristin Kvalheim provides the ever important three-finger Bluegrass banjo sound. The bass player, an original band member, brings more energy than you’ve ever seen on an upright, and a deep bass voice to round out the band’s four-part harmony.
This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, Wisconsin Union members and their guests. Anyone can become a Wisconsin Union member at union.wisc.edu/membership.
