Krannert Uncorked with High Cotton Bluegrass Band
Hailing from the flat prairie land of east central Illinois, High Cotton has been entertaining audiences for over 20 years. The band's bluegrass melodies aim at the heart of the high-lonesome sound, full of foggy bottoms and smoky mountain tops, airing out three- and four-part harmonies on top of scintillating banjo, skirling fiddles, and Monroe-style mandolin, all played to the insistent rhythms of guitar and doghouse bass. From its beginning days as house band for a local production of the musical Cotton Patch Gospel, High Cotton has been dedicated to searching out music to zestify your day. No emotions are neglected and a lot of the good ones are encouraged.
At Krannert Uncorked, Stage 5 is the crossroads to gather, make connections, and enjoy great music from local and regional artists.
With deep gratitude, Krannert Center thanks all Patron Sponsors and Corporate and Community Sponsors.
