Don Wagner, Sylvia Kvacik, & Amos Vega, Perform Old Songs with a New Twist

Singer and songwriter, teacher and poet, Don Wagner has been playing guitar and fiddle in Kansas for a number of years, first with the Bill Burrows Band, then on his own.  His mixture of original songs and traditional favorites are rooted in folk, bluegrass, and blues, and the set list spans the decades from the 1920’s to the twenty first century.  More recently Wagner has been performing with Sylvia Kvacik, a former English student who is now an English teacher, forensics coach, and FFA sponsor at Bennington High School.  They are often joined by Amos Vega, a renowned guitarist from the Salina area who has been featured in a number of blues and rock bands.  Together the three performers bring new twists to many of the old songs, putting their original stylistic interpretations into a fresh and refreshing listening experience. The trio draws upon their diverse musical histories to create an energetic and enjoyable musical show interspersed with Wagner’s award-winning cowboy poetry  Make plans to enjoy this unique production of homegrown talent and entertainment that is only available in this limited venue

The Ruble Family (Dave, Angie, Mason, and Wayne) from Minneapolis, Kansas

Don’t pass up the opportunity to enjoy family harmonies, fantastic instrumentals, and old fashion fun.  Come hear what fourth generation roots music sounds like.
