Music at Market December 6:
(Monona Terrace Exhibit Hall B)

8-9 am Joe Loesch & Terri Schmit.
Joe on guitar/banjo and terri on mandolin play old-
time, Irish and Quebecois music arrangements with a light touch. Both are experienced
musicians brought together by the Moldy Jam group, which play later this month at the
DCFM. Joe and terri bring delightfully sweet sounds to their tunes. There may even be
some vocals and one or two original tunes!9-10 am Wild Full Moon Music School
Students perform an hour of old-time, Irish and classical
pieces. Ranging in age from 8 to 15 these string players will present solos, duets and
group pieces. Students are: Addy Arrigoni (violin), Henry Arrigoni (mandolin), Martha
Barta (violin), Gabi Dobereiner (cello), Bethany Erb (guitar) Torbin Kittleson
(mandolin), Dara Newville (cello), Kiley Newville (violin), Jimmy Schultz (guitar) and
Thana Zoske (mandolin).Wild Full Moon is a private music school and music publisher owned and operated by
terri schmit. terri has been teaching strings and piano for over 35 years, currently
teaching in Blue Mounds. Many of her students will compete in the state Solo/Ensemble
in 2015 and at least one will be trying out for the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra.
It’s an exciting time under the Wild Full Moon!10-12 am The Sills
Like all bands, this band grew out of previous bands. This one attempts
to make a little less noise and a bit more melody. Blair Clark (vocals/guitar/songwriter) and
Leah Brooke Conway, vocals, do the front work; Blair does the lion’s share of writing and all
have a lot to say about the arrangements. The two share the vocals putting together a sound
at times weaving two into one but still keeping themselves intact. Chris Moore
(banjo/guitar,synthesizer)is the bridge to a variety of styles evident in the Sills’ body of
work; his diversity of instrumentation full of genre-bending textures, makes gypsy,
country, jazz, punk, blues and alternative voices available to Blair’s introverted lyrics.
David Ross (drums) and Jim McKiernan (guitar), and Ken Keeley (bass) create a rhythm
section that channels some big band energy and holds the band together.
