  Hickory Ridge Concert Series: Ken Carlysle Returns to Hickory Ridge   

Hickory Ridge Concert Series: Ken Carlysle Returns to Hickory Ridge

  • Location: ISM Dickson Mounds Museum, Lewistown
  • Date: Saturday, August 17, 2013, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Returning to the Hickory Ridge Concert Series on Saturday, August 17, 2013 will be favorite musician Ken Carlysle.  The concert begins at 7:30 pm at Dickson Mounds Museum, Lewistown, IL.

Ken's touring band The Cadillac Cowboys was one of the premier country rock bands of the Midwest playing up to 300 nights a year and performing for the President of the United States and in places as diverse as Key West, FL and New York City.   

Always hailed as a premier showman, Ken takes a simpler approach these days focusing on original music and instrumentals that harkens back to the early day of country music.  He calls his unique fiddle style hoe-jun; part hoe down and part Cajun.  Ken's country roots style is guaranteed to make for a fine time!
