Blackberry Wood | 5:30 PM & 6:45 PM
Blackberry Wood will whisk you away to a wild, footstompin' and old style country-gypsy-circus barn dance! Imagine a private party in the back of a traveling carnival - that's Blackberry Wood! On whatever stage they perform, Blackberry Wood knows how to get folks dancing.
Teapot in the Tuba| 5:00 PM & 6:15 PM Teapot in the Tuba is the miniature circus-jazz orchestra of Mike Allen on clarinet and Katheryn Petersen on accordion. Their suitcase contains tunes for rarified purposes such as calming savage beasts, stoking the fires of ceremony and providing a high-diving diva with a flash of wonderment!
