Celebrating Local Musicians
The Series at Lavender Hill Farm celebrates and supports local musicians with short outdoor performances for you to enjoy while picnicking before the show.
Based in Madison, WI, the award-winning husband and wife duo of Mary Gaines (cello,guitar,bass,vocals) and Chris Wagoner (violin, mandolins, lapsteel, ukulele, guitar, accordion, vocals) play an eclectic mix of Americana – original and classic tunes ranging from folk to jazz, bluegrass to blues, honky-tonk and a little singer-songwriter on the side.
Chris Wagoner and Mary Gaines have been in-demand private instructors, session musicians and performers in the Midwest for over three decades with tours spanning the US and Europe. Together and separately, they are founding members of several of Wisconsin’s favorite musical groups, past and present: Harmonious Wail, The Common Faces, The Bob Westfall Band, The Moon Gypsies and the The Stellanovas just to name a few.
