WALNUT GROVE — Eight groups will stir up the dust during the Loose Gravel Music Festival July 29-30, at the Wilder Outdoor Theater, a mile west of Walnut Grove.

MORE EVENTS
Professional researcher Debbie Boe will give an introduction to family history research for new genealogists.
The event will include viewing a live webinar hosted by the U.S. Department of State over Zoom, followed by a question and answer session with community members and Kivu Law staff.
Everyone is invited to bring in a photo of their pet, friend or partner, or a favorite card or memento, so that the library can make it part of a display.

Gates open at 4:30 p.m. July 29 for a 5:30 performance by Mankato band Nate Boots and the High Horses playing songs of hope, history, heartbreak and mystery. The band performs acoustic-electric alt-folk music. At 7:30 p.m., the party band from the Twin Cities, Four on the Floor, lays down a well-oiled, high-octane, rock-n-roll with sing-a-long anthems and breakdowns to soaring guitar solos and unbridled full-bore rock.

Gates open at 10 a.m. Saturday, with Maple Street delivering the oldies with pleasant harmonies starting at 11 a.m. At 1 p.m., country artist Kayla Daniels brings a beautiful voice with original tunes. At 2 p.m., The High 48s make music that combines classic bluegrass with a modern attitude. They will also host a short band camp at 3 p.m. for pickers and grinners.

Monroe Crossing takes the stage at 4 p.m. with a blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, original bluegrass and selections outside the bluegrass genre.

At 5 p.m., the Fish Heads regard their music as rockin’ folk and ’grass, but they are not mainstream bluegrass. They perform old rock standards from the Bee Gees and Aerosmith, to Steve Miller, AC/DC and Johnny Cash.

At 9 p.m., Arkansauce, a genre-hopping, four piece string band from northwest Arkansas, bends the rules and blurs the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, Americana, with notes of country, blues and funk.
