Three Yellow Springers join forces for a fun-packed event at Foundry Theater. Tickets on sale June 1.
Dubbed The Pop Wagner Greene County Trio, three musicians with Yellow Springs ties will be in concert on Thursday, July 7, at the Foundry Theater at Antioch College.
Pop Wagner —a Yellow Springs native who moved to the Twin Cities decades ago —is a singer, songwriter, storyteller, guitar picker, fiddler, lariat-trick artist, and downright funny guy. His performances of cowboy songs, old-time fiddle tunes, country blues, and more have won over audiences across 44 states and 14
countries. This Ohio trip marks a sort of homecoming: he will also be attending his 55th Yellow Springs High School class reunion.
Joining Pop is another YSHS graduate, Gregory “Duke” Dewey, on washboard. You may have heard Dewey on drums with any number of bands, including Country Joe and the Fish in a soggy set at Woodstock 1969. And rounding out the trio, is bassist Ben Cooper, a Greene County resident who performed with Rhythm in
Shoes and is a member of the Ohio Corndaddies string band.
In addition to the Foundry Theater show, concertgoers can choose to add a VIP reception (complete with refreshments and Pop’s lariat tricks and humor) to the music- and fun-packed evening.
The events are sponsored by public radio station WYSO-FM and Yellow Springs Home, Inc. (developers of permanently affordable and sustainable housing).
