  • Spring Concert Series - Bill Armstrong 6-8pm

    Host: Hop Harvest & Vine
    Fee: Free

    I am a singer-songwriter based out of Elm Grove, WI and Durango, CO. I perform as a solo artist and in a Blues Duo, called Blue Waters. My blues duo partner is "Blue Rick Gerek," one of the finest blues harp players around. We perform old time blues (think Terry/McGhee, Josh White, etc.), as well as country blues and jazz standards (Georgia on my Mind, Summertime, Don't Get Around Much Anymore) and traditional American tunes (Wayfaring Stranger, St. James Infirmary). Though we normally perform as a guitar/vocal/harp duo, we can add bass and drums for venues wanting more of a full band sound. When playing solo, I do some of the same songs, but throw in more originals (fingerstyle guitar with vocals), and concentrate on less blues and more Americana, So it is an eclectic mix, as my philosophy is that great melodies and lyrics stand up well to different interpretations and are always listenable. As a solo artist, I can play coffee shops, small taverns, house concerts...AND my schedule allows daytime gigs, which can take me to elder care facilities and physical rehab facilities. You can find my music on CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and more. I hope you like what you hear, and would love to play for you sometime. Heck, I can play a little Dobro, Mando, and Bass, too, so maybe I can sit in with YOUR group sometime!
