'Big Rock Candy Mountain' Coming To You, Online, From Rock Island's Circa '21

Coming to your homes on February 6 is the bluegrass musical BIG ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN!

It's Time To Put On The Ritz For Your Video You Deserve

It’s Monday. Yeah. We feel you. And so, every Monday, we give you a music video. A fun, funny music video.

For our latest video, we’ve chosen a very special song. One which is particularly batsh*t crazy on every level. It’s... Read More

Far from a luxury or a frill that can be easily excised, arts and culture have proven to be a vital lifeline during the devastating Covid-19 pandemic. As I’ve said before, the arts – at any time – help define who we are; they tell the story of us through a staggeringly diverse number of forms and genres. They lift us up, comfort us, inspire us, express what we may not... Read More
