The Woodwalk Concert Series welcomes Michael Lee Ammons and The Water Street Hot Shots to the stage on Aug. 17 at 7 pm.
Michael Lee Ammons and The Water Street Hot Shots have a repertoire of classic tunes from the blues, hokum, string band, and jug band traditions. An appealing performer with a keen awareness of early blues styles, Ammons leads an old-fashioned revivalist and jug band out of the unlikely locale of Sheboygan.
Ammons’ love of history permeates his music and brings it to life. The Hot Shots’ approach to the classic blues of the 1920s and ‘30s is reverent and fun. The band presents acoustic blues as contemporary, living music rather than museum pieces.
Band members include Michael Lee Ammons, Rich Higdon, Tim Dekker, JR Fenner and George Reynolds.
Tickets are $15 and all shows begin at 7 pm. Call ahead to reserve tickets. Ice cream, soda and beer will be for sale.
