Our Music Committee searches far and wide to invite unique and talented musicians to perform at ArtStart on the indoor or outdoor stages.

Past performers include: Drew Peterson, The Lowest Pair, Robert "One Man" Johnson,  Charlie Parr, Brothers Burn Mountain, Lee Henke and Ira Wolf, J.E. Sunde, Shoestring Joe and the Star Thief, Humbird, Joe and Vicki Price, Scott Kirby, and Boat Patrol.

We are fortunate in who has performed at ArtStart in the past. As a non-profit, we cannot afford most of them, which is why we suggest a $10 admission donation. All concert admission donations pay the musicians.

A beer and wine cash bar is open during all evening concerts.

Co-hosted by WXPR, Local. Public. Radio

More Concerts Coming Soon!
