About Tony Rice Unit
We’re willing to bet that most flatpickers remember the first time they heard Tony Rice play their reaction was similar to ours — a mouth opened in astonishment. Such power, tone, timing, and fluidity coming from one acoustic guitar, thus the reason for asking him to return to the Opera House. Even today, after hearing countless great flatpickers, there’s still something about Tony Rice’s playing that sets him apart. Tony Rice spans the range of acoustic music, from straight-ahead bluegrass to jazz-influenced new acoustic music, to songwriter-oriented folk. Over the course of his career, he has played alongside J.D. Crowe and the New South, David Grisman, led his own groups, collaborated with fellow picker Norman Blake, Peter Rowan and recorded with his brothers. With grace, technical skill, and exquisite taste and timing, Rice is still growing. The Current Tony Rice Unit line-up: Tony and Wyatt Rice, guitars; Rickie Simpkins, fiddle; Josh Williams, mandolin; Bryn Davies, bass (more…)

The first members of the original Madison Brass Band, founded in 1863, were businessmen, cobblers, cigar-makers, stone-cutters, and a saloon proprietor. Only one member was a professional musician. The band went into remission for many years until the early 2000’s when it revitalized its mission to bring the great British and American brass band tradition back to the greater Madison area. In addition to concerts, festivals and many events in southern Wisconsin, MBB has also performed twice at the Grand Celebration of Brass Bands in Iowa. (more…)
The meticulously restored Stoughton Opera House is one of Wisconsin’s premiere live music theaters.
After a holiday respit the Opera House comes to life again with Pro Arte Quartet on January 23rd.
The Pro Arte Quartet has enjoyed a long and distinguished career as one of the most enduring string quartets in existence. Founded in Brussels in 1912 by violinist Alphonse Annou and violist Germain Prevost, the Pro Arte became the court quartet to Queen Elisabeth of Belgium. Its world reputation soared with a European tour in 1919, earning the group such outstanding acclaim that many composers – including Bartok, Milhaud, and Honegger – composed new works for the Pro Arte. In 1940, stranded in the United States by the outbreak of World War II, the University of Wisconsin-Madison offered the Quartet the position of Artist-in-Residence, which continues to the present day.
Current members, David Perry and Suzanne Beia, violins, Sally Chisholm, viola, and Parry Karp, cello, have continued the Pro Arte legacy.
“The Pro Arte Quartet plays all very demanding music with perfect sympathy and superb musicianship…” (American Record Guide)

If you are like my Inn, a good bottle of wine or me, you have a little age on you. That makes us a little unique in the world.
We also lived through the original reality TV, when the only Big Brother was a book. Shows like Rowan & Martin’s Laugh In & The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour were our reality. To get Variety in your programs you didn’t have to hit a button on the remote, you watched a Variety Show. We heard a few good jokes, a few good songs, and most likely a little sarcasm.
Well you can relive part of your past at the Stoughton Opera House on Sunday November 15th, when Tommy and Dick grace the stage with their “The Smothers Brothers Show, An Intimate Evening with Tom and Dick”
“The Smothers Brothers have been described as comedic treasures, comic geniuses, rare, original and peerless.” Tickets for the show are only $60, but I think they are priceless.
While you are out enjoying yourself, why not extend your enjoyment and your weekend with a night at the Naeset Roe Inn a bed and breakfast. Just three blocks from the Opera House, the Inn is known for its homey relaxing atmosphere and owner Carl Povlick’s 4 course breakfast. But don’t call me a chef, even if I have 40 years in the restaurant business. “I’m just a DGC (damn good cook).”

A Staycation is what a lot of you are doing this year. Taking a quick overnight or two night trip, not to far away from home, just to get away and do something different. Instead of that 10 day trip to the Rocky Mountains. It isn’t going to break the bank and you’re away from reality for a while.
Think about visiting Stoughton WI and experience all the history of this Norwegian founded city. Architecture to art are all around. Shop Main Street then grab a pizza and a movie.

What could be better?
You’ll be staying in a quiet Victorian B&B and you can walk to the theater and bistro. You don’t have to worry about having a second glass of wine or a nightcap before you come back to the inn.
