Performing Live at the Rookery this Sunday
If you're a regular reader of these Rookery updates you'll no doubt recognize the name, Bruce Bowers. Not only is Bruce the talented fiddle player from the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua house band (Blue Canvas Orchestra). He also happens to be the father and occasional musical duo partner of Yazmín, a frequent performer on the Rookery stage.
Bruce Bowers returns to the Rookery this Sunday for the second to last performance in our summer live outdoor music series. But this time his musical partner will be Ric Gillman, an amazing 12 string guitarist from Madeline Island.
Bruce and Ric only recently began their collaboration, performing together under the name, Barefoot Wonder. So new is this musical partnership we couldn't even find a photo of them on the same stage. Perhaps we'll snap a few of them at the Rookery this weekend and stake our claim to history in the making! You too can be there to witness one of their first public performances by Barefoot Wonder.
And it looks as though our remarkable streak of good weather fortune will continue for this, our 16th outdoor musical performance of the season. The clouds and rain of the past few days should dissipate and though it will remain cooler (in the mid-50s) it is forecast to be mostly clear on Sunday. So throw on a sweater or fleece and enjoy a beautiful autumn day of live outdoor music.
As always the Rookery grill fires up at 1:30 on Sunday and the music begins at 2. There's no cover charge though gratuities for the musicians are most appreciated.
Bruce Bowers & Ric Gillman. Sunday. Live. Outdoors. And only at the Rookery!
The Rookery will continue to be open 7 nights for dinner thru Monday, October 15 (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning Oct 16).
Our Friday and Saturday lunch service is over for the season. However, we will continue to feature our patio grill menu from 1:30 to 4:30 on Sundays in conjunction with live outdoor music performances through September 30.
