This year's festival will also feature free master classes, an artist question and answer session with featured performer Jesse Cook, and a vendor showcase featuring Cascio Interstate Music, Fender, Hartland Music, and more, including raffle prizes and the ability to "test drive" a wide variety of instruments. Milwaukee rock/blues guitarist Greg Koch and Canadian rumba Flamenco guitarist Jesse Cook will headline the festival with evening performances, August 15-16.
