A Blues, Rag and String Band at DCA

Michael Lee Ammons and the Water Street Hot Shots will present a concert of blues, rags, and string band music in the Door Community Auditorium Fireside Lobby on Feb. 8 at 7 pm. Ammons has been performing vintage blues guitar across Wisconsin since the late 1980s. After he was joined by music partner (and Door County resident) Rich Higdon on washboard in the early ’90s, the duo played a variety of venues and festivals in Door County. In 1999, Ammons and his family settled in Sheboygan, where Ammons and Higdon built their new band The Water Street Hot Shots. Tim Dekker (fiddle) was welcomed to the group during those first years and has been an important component to the ensemble ever since.
