Highland Road Kicks Off DCA Coffeehouse Concerts

Highland Road will kick off the Door Community Auditorium’s (DCA) Coffehouse Concert series at 7 pm on Jan. 14. Highland Road is a familiar favorite in the DCA Coffeehouse series, having played to sold-out houses in both 2009 and 2010. Their concert, which will take place on the DCA main stage, will include both traditional and contemporary bluegrass, a bit of country, and a smattering of folk and popular music played bluegrass style.

Highland Road is made up of northern Door County residents Andy Coulson, Tad Gilster, Tony Gebauer and Rick Gordon. They call themselves “back porch pickers”– semi-professional musicians who love the driving instrumentals and haunting harmonies of both traditional and progressive bluegrass.

Future Coffeehouse Concerts will feature Door County singer-songwriters Katie Dahl (Jan. 21) and Seth Raddatz (Jan. 28), didgeridoo player Brian Pertl (Feb. 17), local song- and joke-sters Ben There, Dan That (Feb. 25), and accomplished composer/songwriter John Hegner (March 3).

The concerts are held on Saturdays at 7 pm, with the exception of Pertl’s Friday performance. Coffeehouse concerts are $14; advance ticket reservations are strongly recommended.

The Coffeehouse Concerts are sponsored by The Cordon Family Foundation and The Lodge 106.9. Refreshments will be available for purchase from Base Camp Coffee Shop.

The DCA box office, located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek, is open Monday – Friday from 12 – 5 pm. Tickets can be purchased in person, by calling 920.868.2728, or by visiting
