John Stano Live at Pizza on the Farm

I am happy to play for my friends Chaz and Megan at Grassway Organics for Pizza on the Farm again this year. I played there last year and had some very enjoyable evenings. A bit of almost normalcy during a strange year. Delicious wood fired locally sourced, pizza, micro brews and music! There is plenty of room to spread out and social distance. Bring a chair or blanket. Event starts at 4pm. I start playing at around 5pm.

John Stano and Tom Schwark Live: at the South Shore Farmer’s Market
Sep 4 @ 10:00 am – 11:15 am

I am joined by fellow veteran musician and raconteur, the inimitable Tom Schwark on mandolin and vocals. Expect an entertaining collision of original and traditional blues, folk and Americana.

The South Shore Farmer’s Market is a good time with a beautiful view. Lots of fresh and prepared foods. I enjoy playing for my friends and neighbors at this laid back outdoor setting. You can even pick my CD “John Stano Live At the South Shore Farmers Market” which includes the song ‘Meet Me on the Oak Leaf.’ The lyrics to this song are included in a new history of the Oak Leaf and Milwaukee 76  trail written by local writer Jill Maher.
