Utilizing the refurbished bandstand that sits in the heart of the town, Peterson will be hosting an eight series musical jam. Held every other Friday, during the fish fry, the series hosts a wide range of local musicians. Memorial Day weekend, the series kickoff, string trio Vinegar Hill will be performing.

Comprised of Houston resident Drue Fergison (fiddle) and Rushford residents Donna Buckbee (fiddle, voice) and Joy Hoiland (mandolin), Vinegar Hill features traditional American, old-time Appalachian music. “Much of this music hails from the rich southern Appalachian mountain culture, predating bluegrass, with roots going back to the 19th century and earlier,” notes the group. Also included are Scandinavian-American tunes from the area.

The group also enjoys more informal musical styling. “We have a lot of fun working out harmonies and simply jamming informally. Jamming is not performative, but is a direct outgrowth of a traditional, inclusive approach that invites amateur musicians into the group to play along and experience the joy of making and learning music together. We are excited to share this style of informal, imperfect, in-process, living and breathing music with others.”

The music gets underway at 7pm, May 24. It is free and open to all ages. “We are getting excited about our first jam,” enthuses Gail Boyum, one of the organizers. “We invite you to come out and join us!”
