Wild Colonial Bhoys Wild Colonial Bhoys is more than just an Irish band – they are an Irish American band. They’re like a blended whiskey: a musical melding of both the old and the new, from the peat smoke scent of the old sod to the can-do spirit that embodies the American dream.
SisterTree They render radiant, expansive harmonies for strings and voices, original and traditional tunes and folk ballads, favorites and downright far-fetched selections suited to many occasions. They bring you roots inspired musings that are grounded in Traditional Celtic and Americana sensibilities. Exploring with an independent spirit, roving over the wild and storied landscapes of life, collecting, tinkering, and translating our heritage, we envibe with the rhythms of sugarplums dropped in the forest.

Little Fevers featuring Lucy Michell & Kegan and Taylor with Ascendence Dance Chicago
Little Fevers:
Little Fevers is a sweet and crunchy amalgamation of pop rock. Invoking the playfulness of bands like Pavement and the Violent Femmes, and vocal textures of idols such as Peter Gabriel and The Microphones to form something all their own.
Kegan and Tayor:
Jesse Kegan and Andrew Taylor have been performing together in Chicago for more than five years. Their current body of work is comprised mostly of live and pre-recorded musical scoring for theatre, including RIP: A Spoken Word Musical Fantasia, written by Kestutis Nakas (who’s work is currently showing at MOMA). Kegan and Taylor also have a vast interdisciplinary experience in the performing arts such as, devised sketch and guerilla street performance, producing a reoccurring cabaret style variety show, and are probably best known in Chicago for their rock band Pirates!
Kegan and Taylor are proud to present new work one night only in collaboration with artists from Ascendence Dance Co.
