WINTER FOLKSTRAVAGANZA! Friday, January 24th, 7pm

Join us at Cousin Andy’s this Friday night for our semi-annual benefit concert feature some of our area’s favorite musicians.

The lineup includes Doug E. Rees, SeeSee Sisters, and County Graves.

Doug E. Rees, a songwriter from Jackson, MO, is no stranger to the Cousin Andy’s stage.  Since his last Cousin Andy’s appearance, Doug has released a new CD, NATURE BOY.  We always are happy to have Doug venture over from the other side of the river to share his music with us.  Doug says, “My songs are about REAL LIFE and real people. You will know these people for they have been a part of your life too. They may have different names but the relationship will be somewhat the same.”

The SeeSee Sisters are Christine Bauer and Candy Davis, with Marty Merrill.  Canadian original folk, with a dash of American seasoning.

Brett Haynes writes in NIGHTLIFE Entertainment Guide, “Self-described as a Southern Illinois Americana band, County Graves employ a strong hold on an old sound with an able and young grip and a slight twist. Spinning goosebump-worthy tales about whiskey, murder, coal-mining, ghosts, the devil, and debauchery, laced with knowledge about local folklore and musical flavors, and delivered with urgency and honesty, County Graves are an old-soul powered band for a new generation.”
