Songwriter Chris Kokesh returns to town with a very full spinning performance plate in early May. The fiddle-swinging songwriting storyteller and Misty River alumni hosts two workshops and two concerts this time through.

Kokesh lived in SE Portland for years, teaching fiddle, performing with Misty River, Brokentop and soloing her own brand of music. This was her first winter living in Wisconsin where it may not even be Spring still.

Want to hear her songs live or take music/songwriting lessons with her? Better move quickly as spaces are very limited.
