A humble man from the Northwoods,  Billy Bronsted has a voice that fills the room and a smile that warms  the heart. His midwestern kindness shines through in his sincere  performances. If you’re scouring the pines, you may find Billy helping  his family and friends build shelter, or hanging out in the swamp-side  cabin he built while contemplating the nature of our existence. Most  days, you’ll find him walking his dog before hitting the road to tell a  few heartfelt stories. Billy Bronsted’s music is here to stay, keeping  the Northwoods alive with the tradition of honest songwriting and  seasoned guitar pickin’. With two studio albums, a couple of  cross-country tours, and a host of festival shows under his belt,  Billy’s journey with music is headed toward a smoky, northern horizon  and straight into your heart. Learn more at ---- Augie  Dougherty is a purely Wisconsin man and composer of folk, bluegrass,  and country songs. His goal is to make you laugh, cry, and think about  why. You'll often find him playing the banjo in Armchair Boogie or  sitting in the woods trying to figure it all out. Either way, he's just  doing what he loves. ---- The Spine Stealers are a two-gal duo,  making spooky folk that is heavily influenced by the northwood pines,  24/7 truck stop diners, heartbreak and dark lakes. Music started by  learning guitar together around bonfires in their shared hometown of Sun  Prairie, WI during the height of the 2020 pandemic. Songwriting came  out through the seasons; Wisconsin winter an especially enduring friend  for their deep dive into telling stories of themselves, of the midwest.  The Spine Stealers began religiously attending open mics in July of 2022  at Mickey's Bar in Madison which soon led to their first show at The  Bur Oak. Since then, they have played shows throughout Wisconsin, most  notably opening Wisconsin Folk Fest at the Majestic Theatre with Dead  Horses, Good Morning Bedlam and Gin Mill Hollow. The duo wants to write  songs that crawl under your skin, to make you feel the winter that rusts  your bones, the heartaches of nostalgia and broken ideas of love – to  prove that we all may share a melancholy of sorts.
