On Tuesday, July 6 at 7 pm, Switchback will take the stage at Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay. Featuring original Americana, traditional Celtic, and a few nods to genres off the beaten path, Switchback includes Martin McCormack and Brian FitzGerald.

Meeting in Chicago and playing in a series of bands together, the duo struck out on their own in 1993, producing 10 albums to date. Showcasing a repertoire ranging from sentimental ballads to blistering rockers, the duo deliver a powerful sound rivaling that of larger ensembles. While their musical paths have taken them to a variety of genres, McCormack and FitzGerald have never abandoned their traditional Celtic roots. At once eliciting praise and frustration by critics who find it difficult to pigeonhole their eclectic sound, Switchback continues to be driven by their mission to create and bring music to far-flung places and unlikely audiences.

In case of rain the concert will be held at the Ladder House in Sturgeon Bay. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs. For more information call 920.493.5979.
