MINERAL POINT, Wis. — The Rural Musicians Forum’s annual “January Thaw” will heat things up with classical/bluegrass band Graminy at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 24, in the historic Opera House.
Along with Graminy, a band out of Madison, the guest artist will be Mineral Point’s Katie Burns Band.
Known best for her two CDs, “You’ll Find your Way” and “Throw the Flowers Down,” Katie Burns is a local indie folk singer-songwriter who lives in Mineral Point, who is noted for angelic vocals, finger-style guitar and her band’s ethereal sound. Her band includes Madison’s Eric Miller on cello, Brian Grimm on bass with Mineral Point’s John Birner on guitar…
The Mineral Point Opera House began in 1915 as a vaudeville house. Throughout the years, it has been used as a movie theater and a venue for a variety of live performances. Now restored and renovated, the building carries forward the historic legacy of Mineral Point.
