Best Folk Performer(s)

Some of the best singer-songwriters in the country live in the Chippewa Valley – and that’s no folk tale. While also delivering beautiful bluegrass melodies, Them Coulee Boys have made themselves known as a Chippewa Valley folk powerhouse. And while Them Coulee Boys have been well-known for years, Spencer Douglas is still in high school but is achieving musical heights well beyond his years. And the highly experienced Brian Bethke continues to be known for mastering rock, folk, and any musical genre he delves into. –Parker Reed
