PUTNEY- Next Stage Arts Project presents The Wiyos, performing two shows, on Saturday, May 17, and a family show Sunday, May 18, at 15 Kimball Hill.

The Wiyos have been rolling for over a decade. They were one of the first “old-timey” bands to emerge on the national scene in the first wave of acoustic bands riding the renewed popularity of early swing jazz, rural folk, old-time blues and Appalachian music. Their relentless touring in the United States and Europe, and numerous critically acclaimed albums and EPs landed them a full 28-day summer tour as openers of the 2009 Bob Dylan Show. The Wiyos were also featured in the BBC television documentary “Folk America Hollerers, Stompers and Old-Time Ramblers.” In 2010, they were featured in the BBC television special “No Sleep ‘Til Yell.”

Tickets are $12 for adults, $6 for children under 12 years old, and available at www.nextstagearts.org, Turn It Up in Brattleboro, and Offerings Jewelry. For more information call (802) 387-0102.
