The Avenue Celebrates Women with this blockbuster, all-female line-up!
Sister Winchester Sister Winchester is a Wisconsin-based duo consisting of small-town sisters, Jenna Lee and Shaun Marie, who have been laughing, singing, and creating together since childhood. Charming audiences with with vocal harmonies (and banter) that only siblings can share, their sound has influences of rock, blues and folk. Additional members include Dave Howell (drums/percussion/harmonies), Aaron Zepplin (lead guitar) and Fred Velpel (bass).
King Margo King Margo is the Nashville-based, magnetic female alt-country/Americana duo of Lucciana Costa and Rachel Coats. Breakthrough artists at the 2021 Mile of Music Festival, King Margo’s style is pure fun, capturing the sarcasm and liveliness honed by playing in rowdy bars deep into the night. This group is poised to break onto the national scene in 2023.
Carsie Blanton Another Mile of Music veteran, Carsie Blanton writes anthems for a world worth saving. Inspired by artists including Nina Simone and John Prine, Carsie delivers every song with an equal dose of moxie and mischief, bringing her audience together in joyful celebration of everything worth fighting for.
“She’s pure old-school cabaret showman, delivering spritely, soulful grooves with retro instrumentation and arrangements that would be at home in jazz clubs and revival tents alike.” AVClub
The Avenue thanks the Women’s Fund at the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region and Women’s Health Specialists, Your Fox Valley OB/GYN Physicians “and these businesses for their support of Women in the Arts”
Kelsey Miles With a big voice, acoustic guitar in hand, and harmonica at her fingertips, Kelsey Miles delivers high-energy shows of blues, rock, soul, and a splash of country. She wowed the audience at The Avenue’s Christmas concert in 2022 and we just knew we had to bring her back.
Kelsey will take you on a musical celebration of the soul; where you'll laugh, sing along, and dance the night away.
Bascom Hill Bascom Hill is our favorite trio of lager-loving, joke cracking, Wisconsin-raised musicians in the truest sense of the word. They are veterans on The Avenue stage because they bring the fun wherever they go!
Bascom Hill’s music has been featured on over 70 TV shows and has shared the stage with The Fray, Lifehouse, Gavin DeGraw, Bob Schneider, Hanson, Augustana, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and more.
Seth Walker Trio “…an accomplished guitarist and an even better singer, distilling the soul of Ray Charles, the Southern boy roots charm of Delbert McClinton, and an uptown blues turn of phrase (à la Percy Mayfield) into his own distinct voice.” – The Vinyl District
We were smitten with Seth Walker’s sound the moment we first heard it. He’s released ten albums, broken into the Top 20 of the Americana Radio Charts, reached No. 2 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart and received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, No Depression and Relix, among others. Along with headline shows, he's been invited to open for The Mavericks, The Wood Brothers, Raul Malo, Paul Thorn and Ruthie Foster, among others.
