The Lantern Kickers are a string band based in Chicago. We draw on the rich tradition of American string band music, including old-time, bluegrass and early country, to play songs that get toes tapping and hearts breaking. With tight vocal harmonies, intricate picking and driving rhythm, the Lantern Kickers will get you fired up!
The players are seasoned performers who have deep ties to traditional music. We’ve all studied or taught at the Old Town School of Folk Music, where our musical roots grew together to form the band in the summer of 2013.
The Market will be taking place every Sunday through March 30, 2014 (with the exception of December 1st). Our new location will be at 2755 N. Milwaukee Avenue in an old bakery building that is slated for demolition. Two big changes this year.
The Hours will be from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm to provide an additional hour for enjoying the Market
We will be pairing our event space and time with "Nosh" a prepared food event featuring local producers and small businesses!
