Two DJs. One Blizzard. No Records.
When a snowstorm knocks the power out and the local radio station loses its tie to the pre-programmed feed, the guys have to punt, and a rejuvenated station brings back spontaneity and joy to the community it serves. Dave Hudson and Paul Libman (“Muskie Love,” “Cheeseheads: The Musical,” “No Bones About It”) will be debuting their seventh musical comedy written exclusively for Northern Sky.

Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are Indigo Girls. Rolling Stone describes them as the “ideal duet partners.… When they sing together, they radiate a sense of shared purpose that adds muscle to their lanky, deeply felt folk-tinged pop songs.” The Grammy-winning duo became overnight folk-rock stars in 1989 and have maintained that status ever since, delivering their unique brand of openhearted songwriting and lush harmonies to sellout crowds worldwide. Indigo Girls’ constant touring, as well as their staunch dedication to social and environmental causes, has earned them a fervidly devoted fan following over the years.
Opening Set by Becky Warren!
As heard on NPRs All Things Considered, Nashville singer/songwriter Becky Warrens debut solo album War Surplus relays the affecting, gritty and candid tale of the relationship between an Iraq-bound soldier named Scott and his girlfriend, June. As the story unfolds, the two meet, fall in love, and struggle to hold it all together when he returns from his deployment with PTSD. From the records award-winning lead track straight through til the last note, Warrens potency as a songwriter is on full display, as she weaves a compelling musical narrative rooted in her own life experiences and the rich sounds of Americana and rock & roll.

DCA welcomes two crowd favorites back to its stage: Luther Dickinson and the Cooperators (Dickinson appeared at DCA last year with his band North Mississippi Allstars) and Birds of Chicago (Door County’s favorite “secular gospel” band). Fresh off of a Grammy nomination for his album “Blues & Ballads (A Folksinger’s Songbook: Volumes I & II),” Dickinson returns to DCA with his band The Cooperators, bringing a little bit of Beale Street to Fish Creek.
