We are holding a Tall Tales Songwriting Contest and the winner will have the opportunity to perform their song on the big Tall Tales outdoor stage!
We're keeping the announcement train rolling along this week! We are pleased to welcome the following artists to our 2016 lineup:
Erin Rae & The Meanwhiles (Nashville, TN)

Kaukauna, WI native Jon Wheelock spent much of the past two decades with a bass guitar in his hands, most notably as a member of Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons. Now he's stepping in front of the lead microphone for the first time, as frontman for an exciting new soul music project.
Trapper Schoepp (Milwaukee, WI)
Auralai (Oshkosh, WI)
Classical beauty meets contemporary pop rhythm and melody. Sometimes haunting, sometimes hilarious; always fiercely engaging.
