The Gordons & Ivas John Tuesday, September 15, 2015 @ 7:00 PM Husband and wife duo the Gordons have been playing their unique and wonderful brand of folk and bluegrass music since the early 70s. Between their warm and old-timey stage presence, deep and timeless songs, impeccable vocal harmonies and fine pickin', the Gordons are a rare breed of musician...purists from a by-gone era that always deliver through their intimate understanding of each other and the music that is their life. Joining them is Ivas John, a young Chicago native who now calls Missouri home and is earning the embrace of blues and roots music communities throughout the Midwest for his authentic and soulful voice, down-to-earth songs, and exceptionally tasteful guitar work. Always one to smile generously and invite the audience in closer, it's nearly impossible to resist the open-hearted joy in Ivas' music...especially when Gary Gordon is at the dobro!
Crafts N Crooners Craft fair starting at 9am with free admission and then a concert that evening. Tickets purchase required for evening concert.

“Their harmonies are seamless and without pretense, and their song choice covers a nice range of material with one foot in oldtime and one in bluegrass.”
