Lake Geneva Schools Orchestra Students to Join Performance


The Georgia Rae Family Band will be performing a FREE concert in Lake Geneva at the Lake Geneva Middle School on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, at 6:00 p.m.  The group will be performing alone, as well as, with the Lake Geneva Schools 4th – 8th Grade Orchestra Students.

Three sisters from a small town on the IL/WI border, Georgia Rae Family Band has always pushed the envelope of traditional music. Their progressive sound inspired by a mix of Americana, contemporary folk and roots, and a little jazzy swing, all flavored with family harmony and youthful energy.  Their original songs are clever and catchy.  Fiddle champion Georgia Rae, lead singer/uke Kelly Jo, Quin on mandolin and banjo are joined by a solid driving rhythm “punk rockin’ momma” on guitar and Joe Burie on bass. 

The family has played and traveled together since 2011. Georgia Rae is the 2016 National Twin Fiddle Champion (NOTFA, ID) and a state grand champion 5 times (IL, WI, MN). GRFB has 4 independently recorded CDs, the latest released in 2016. A solo CD for Georgia Rae and a new GRFB CD is expected spring 2018.  These girls are coming of age and into their own.  

Georgia Rae will be hosting a clinic for all of the Lake Geneva Schools Orchestra Students and the Fiddle Cub prior to the concert on May 8, 2018.  Students will be performing Georgia Rae Family Band pieces with the group at the concert.

The concert is FREE and open to the public.  No tickets are required.  Doors open at 5:45 p.m.
