Tune in beginning this week to a special holiday edition of Tent Show Radio featuring host Michael Perry and Big Top Chautauqua’s Blue Canvas Orchestra.

Originally performed in 2013, this Tent Show Radio program features Big Top Chautauqua’s Blue Canvas Orchestra performing original songs and arrangements of broad range of holiday music from classics like Tchaikovsky’s Russian and Arabian Dance songs to Jackson Browne’s Rebel Jesus to Mr. Grinch.

Spend the evening with Big Top’s Blue Canvas Orchestra featuring author Michael Perry, live in concert from the beautiful and historic Oshkosh Theater.

The Blue Canvas Orchestra (BCO) is Chautauqua’s house band that, together with co-founder and Visuals Director Betty Ferris, provides the entertainment engine that powers the Big Top. This group converged on the Northland from around the country, brought together by the desire to make great art in a beautiful environment. In today’s Chautauqua they continue to be devotees of the “Big Show,” remaining resolute in their commitment to bringing expansive sound, imagery and experience to their audiences.

While strongly rooted in bluegrass, old-time, and folk music, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades produces a sound that draws on the vaults of music collectively and individually enjoyed throughout the course of their lives thus far. The music doesn’t lend itself well to categories or boundaries. Horseshoes & Hand Grenades has begun to form a place in the Midwest music scene, gaining recognition on both a regional and national scale. The band took 3rd place at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s Band Competition in 2012 and has since shared the stage with Trampled By Turtles, The Travelin’ McCourys, Railroad Earth, Merle Haggard, The Infamous Stringdusters, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Marty Stuart.

For thirty-five years Riders in the Sky have been keepers of the flame passed on by the Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. While remaining true to the integrity of Western music, they have themselves become modern-day icons by branding the genre with their own legendary wacky humor and way-out Western wit, and all along encouraging buckaroos and buckarettes to live life ‘The Cowboy Way!’ In addition to being inducted into the Grand Ol’ Opry, and too many halls of fame to mention, they are also the winners of two Grammy awards for music from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 2 and Monsters, Inc. It comes as no surprise then that Billboard’s, Jim Bessman, counts them as one of the “most significant acts in the history of American music.” The Quebe Sisters (pronounced Kway-bee) are the newest darlings of Western music, performing a refreshing blend of vintage country, bluegrass, jazz & swing standards, and Texas style fiddling.

Hot Rize has been astounding the bluegrass world with their fresh, contemporary approach to traditional music ever since their formation in 1978. The band’s unique and progressive style of bluegrass, powerful original songs, tight-as-a-drum ensemble playing, and dynamic stage show quickly made them stars on the major festival circuit and far beyond. In 1990, Hot Rize won the International Bluegrass Association’s first Entertainer of the Year Award. Since 1990, this all-star band has kept their legend alive by performing at only the most prestigious festivals (like Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Telluride, Bonnaroo, and Grey Fox) and a few select venues. In 2014, they released their much-anticipated studio album When I’m Free, their first in 24 years. Hot Rize features Bryan Sutton, Tim O’Brien, Pete Wernick and Nick Forster plus expect an appearance from Red Knuckles and The Trailblazers.

Perhaps it is the familiar thunder in his voice or the relatability of his poetically-wrought lyrics; we always look forward to Greg Brown’s return to the Big Top.

Corey Carlson is our hometown boy, but he’s known and celebrated far and wide. He grew up right here on this very ski hill that is the home of the Big Top, and was weaned on all of the legendary performers that have graced this stage including the Blue Canvas Orchestra where you can often find him sitting in. Carlson is a prolific songwriter and exceptional musician whose charismatic stage presence, amazingly versatile voice and rock solid instrumentation make him a perennial favorite.

The Wailin’ Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse – three distinct voices that together make an achingly perfect vocal sound. Starting as a happy accident of solo singer/songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today’s most beloved international folk/pop/world acts. Bolstered by their frequent appearances on Garrison Keillor’s public radio show A Prairie Home Companion, The Jennys exploded onto the roots music scene, performing at packed venues across Canada, the U.S. and throughout the world. They have garnered several awards for their recordings over the years. These days their touring is limited, so we are especially lucky to get them back for their third appearance on the Big Top stage.
