Barefoot Movement
December 5th
7:30 pm - Cover $15


Heartfelt, energetic, and down home. Heralded by CMT Edge as "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene," the music of the Nashville based group The Barefoot Movement is as down to earth as their intention for members of their audience: sit back, relax, take your shoes off, and stay a while. All the worries and frustrations of the world melt away as this charming, acoustic band takes listeners back to a simpler place and time. Whether you're seeking emotional ballads or rip-roaring barn-burners, you can expect a collection of music that offers something for everyone. With two full length albums, an EP of traditional music, several cross-country tours, and appearances at some of the top bluegrass festivals in the United States already under their belt, the possibilities for this act are endless. The group has enjoyed almost non-stop touring including a trip to Burkina Faso, Africa where they were guests of the American Embassy, and in September of 2014, they received a Momentum Award, naming them "Band of the Year" by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

Their show is as fun to watch as it is to hear. The smiles on the faces of the band are obvious displays of the joy and excitement they feel when performing and the audience shares in the fun. With effortlessly executed transitions, the pacing between the softer and more vigorous numbers constantly has fans on the edge of their seats.

With crowds teeming with enthusiasm at every performance, and new fans joining the fold across the nation, word is surely spreading and the message is clear: barefoot is better. Won't you join the movement?
This is what music sounds like between two Scandinavian transplants in the Midwest coming together to share their fiddle tunes.

Larry Long & Raldo Schnieder
December 6th
7:30 pm- Cover $15


Larry Long:
Larry Long's a chip off the old block of American hardwoods, a singer-songwriter, spoken-word poet, rouser, seeker, storyteller and conservationist.

Like his artistic forefathers Pete Seeger and WoodyGuthrie before him, Long's sense of place and time is eloquently captured inhis music and in the powerful community building he'sdone all over the country and abroad.

Author Studs Terkel called Long "a true American Troubadour." When Pete Seeger was told that Larry is often referred to as the Pete Seeger of Minnesota, Pete replied, "I would be honored to be called the Larry Long of New York." Inspired by Seeger's work to clean up the Hudson River Larry founded the Mississippi River Revival. Long also assembled the first hometown tribute to Woody Guthrie in Okemah, Oklahoma, which today has evolved into the annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival.

Long has sung at major concerts and festivals including Awesome Africa Festival (South Africa), Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada), at the Hollywood Bowl with Kris Kristofferson, and at Madison Square Garden with Joan Baez and others for Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday Celebration.

Long is a recipient of the In The Spirit of Crazy Horse Award and the Pope John XXIII Award for his work in forgotten communities.

Performing with Larry will be lead-guitarist, composer, producer George Parrish, who has over 50 years' experience in the music industry. Throughout his storied career, Mr. Parrish has performed nationally with the likes of Seals & Crofts, Eumir Deodato, Cherrell, and Alexander O'Neal.

Raldo Schneider:
Raldo Schneider refers to himself as just 'an old country boy with a guitar and a song', but as one of his many admirers wrote,"Raldo's the greatest unknown songwriter that America has."


Schneider's musical influences are John Prine and Neal Young. Growing up and working on a family farm in Iowa also influences his writing. As Raldo tells it, "I taught myself to play the guitar during the winter of 1979 while snowed in for days o out on the rural route. I also started writing songs that winter."

Over the years Schneider's recorded twelve full-length albums of original material. His CD 'Burning Daylight' won best country CD of the year in 2012 from the Rural Roots Music Commission.

Raldo's songs will make you laugh and a moment later put a tear in your eye. His quick witted humor is reflected in the names of the bands who've given him musical support through the years, which include 'The Sway Backs', 'Old Dogs', 'New Tales', 'The Night Crawlers', 'The Woodhogs' and 'No Problemo Band'.

Raldo Schneider has been a long time supporter of the Mississippi River Revival and created his own hometown Cedar Falls version with an annual Cedar River Festival.

Joining Raldo Schneider at Leo & Leona's will be lead guitarist Rick Ottman and Travis Smiley on bass.

Ariane Lydon & Friends
December 7th
7:00 pm - Cover $20


"Her deep, smoky voice has hints of June Tabor and Frankie Armstrong. It's an alluring voice singing equally alluring poetry... 'Winter's Run' may be the most poetic snowbird ballad ever penned."
Rich Warren, The Midnight Special and Folkstage, WFMT 98.7, Chicago

"Her voice has an unusual quality that is hard to describe. If Judy Collins' voice were a crystal clear stream, Lydon's voice, equally as alluring, would have a little mud and some catfish swimming around."
Lee Armstrong

"Gorgeous dark alto vocalist and bold musician. As a singer songwriter her songs balance passion and serenity, betrayal and ecstasy, playfulness and depth. There is simply no one like her. She's dancing with the whole thing, and in the listening, we find we are as well."
Andrew Calhoun, Waterbug Records

TUGG Holdiay Bash Holiday Album Release
December 21st

The west coast of Wisconsin is not typically thought of as a hotbed of alternative reggae music. However, TUGG, hailing from La Crosse, WI has done an amazing job channeling tropical grooves and breezy melodies and has quickly become a top draw in the Midwest and beyond. Coming from a state known more for the Green Bay Packers, cold weather, and cheese, they boast an impressive resume of rubbing shoulders with reggae heavyweights. From shows with Ziggy Marley, Barrington Levy and Slightly Stoopid to Tours with The Wailers, The Dirty Heads, and PASSAFIRE...

"As one of the Midwest's finest staples to the reggae-rock community, TUGG is notorious for their tropical vibes, breezy melodies, and living-the- life message" - - ThePier.org

Happy Hazard Holiday w/ Tom Wopat
December 28th
7:30 pm - Cover $15


3:00 - 5:00 pm Meet and Great

All it takes is a phrase or two from Tom Wopat's warm, engaging baritone to trigger the desire to hear more. And the more one listens, the better it gets from the way he finds the heart of a song's story to his lyrical phrasing and his gently swinging, jazz-infused rhythms.

That's a large handful of uniquely appealing qualities, and they're all over the fourteen utterly captivating tunes on I've Got Your Number.Tom applies his far-ranging interpretive skills to discovering new, intriguing musical twists in such Great American Songbook classics as "The Good Life," "The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Call Me," "Born To Be Blue," "I Won't Dance" and, of course, the title track. As if that wasn't enough, he also takes his listeners on adventurous new journeys through contemporary songs from the likes of Paul Simon, Judy Collins, Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Hornsby and James Taylor.
