- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
The Yellow Bellied Sap Suckers perform original songs and tunes inspired by the classic hillbilly, country-duo, and old-time musical traditions–and also mines this same repertoire for forgotten gems that deserve to be heard again. Based in Soldiers Grove, WI, the Sapsuckers (Nikki Grossman, guitar, fiddle, and vocals; Joe Hart, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) perform frequent concerts, as well as square and contra dances, and they are known for the light touch and sense of humor they bring to their performance.

Concerts are held the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Museum auditorium. Tickets are available at the door.
