Pack your blanket, a picnic dinner and a bottle of wine and sit back and enjoy the show in the midst of our fragrant Fountain Garden! Klehm will close at 3:00 pm and reopen at 4:00 pm for Woodsong attendees to enjoy the grounds before the show starts at 6:00 pm.
‘Trinadora’ names a trilling bird native to Argentina, a guitar in Peruvian slang, and – most important for our purposes – the Ron Holm and Jannie Nelson duo. The pair selected their name for Jannie’s trilling on her bird-shaped ocarina and for Ron’s guitar. Jannie also plays keyboard, concertina, penny whistle, and various percussion instruments; Ron also plays harmonica and bass. The two are both head-turning singers, and their respective abilities to channel the vocals styles of Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline have garnered standing ovations. When Midwest standouts John Bishoff (guitar, vocals) and Tim Austin (percussion, vocals) join the fun, the ‘Trinadora Rocks’ band (“T’ Rocks”, for short) is the result. The band’s repertoire includes 100s of original, standards, and vintage songs in mind-stretching variety ranging from country to jazz to Celtic. The band’s musical potpourri program is called ‘US Roots.’
