Hit Music Revue “Buckets of Rain” at
Door Community Auditorium

On June 15, six of Door County’s favorite musicians will come to Door Community Auditorium for a revival of their hit musical revue Buckets of Rain: The Songs of Bob Dylan. After selling out multiple performances at Woodwalk Gallery last fall, Memphis multi-instrumentalists Eric Lewis and Tommy Burroughs, local folk crooners Katie Dahl and Jeanne Kuhns, and bassist-percussionists Rich Higdon and Patrick Palmer will reunite in this one-night-only tribute to one of America’s most iconic songwriters.

Combining their considerable vocal talent and prodigious instrumental skills, the Buckets of Rain crew breathes new life into some of Dylan’s best-known songs. The troupe’s arrangements recall the power of such Dylan songs as “The Times They Are A-Changin’” and make classic tunes like “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “I Shall Be Released” spark and crackle. Each Buckets of Rain performer has chosen a selection of their favorite Dylan tunes to perform throughout the evening, backing each other up with fine vocals, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, electric guitar, dobro, harmonica, bass, and percussion.

Bob Dylan (who turned seventy years old last year) is arguably one of America’s most groundbreaking songwriters, influencing countless musicians and writing dozens of hits in his long tenure on the music scene. His songs range from straight-ahead folk to classic rock-and-roll, from modern jazz to traditional blues. The depth and breadth of Dylan’s songwriting make him an ideal subject for the wide-ranging talents of the Buckets of Rain cast.

Memphis multi-instrumentalists Tommy Burroughs and Eric Lewis are well-known on the Door County music scene for their astounding musical wizardry on a multitude of stringed instruments. Both have won the Premier Player Award for Strings by the Memphis Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Lewis has worked locally with American Folklore Theatre and a plethora of Door County musicians, and has also toured nationally with the first nationwide tour of Patsy! and Prairie Home Companion favorites Robin and Linda Williams. Burroughs is an accomplished songwriter who has toured and played with a host of internationally known musicians, as well as local bands like the Nicks and the Hagen Family.

Katie Dahl is a Door County resident and national touring artist who is known locally for her work with American Folklore Theatre and Door Shakespeare, as well as for her solo shows. Her rich alto voice and lively performances have earned her many accolades, including 2010 Big Top Chautauqua Songwriter of the Year. Jeanne Kuhns is a singer-songwriter who weaves themes of blues and jazz into her own unique blend of progressive folk. Kuhns is possessed of a versatile voice that is at once powerful and intimate. In 2008, she was voted “Best Female Musician” in Door County Magazine.

Rich Higdon is a bassist and percussionist who regularly performs with a variety of Door County artists, including Katie Dahl, Lynn Gudmundsen, and Chris Irwin. Higdon is also a well-known Door County potter. Patrick Palmer, a member of the band Lost Mothra and owner of Novel Ideas bookstore, accompanies musicians across the peninsula with his skills on both electric and upright bass.

DCA’s Buckets of Rain performance is sponsored by Door County Land Trust and Ecology Sports & Basecamp.

Tickets for Buckets of Rain range from $15-20 and may be purchased on the phone at (920) 868-2728, online at, or in person at the DCA box office. The box office is located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek and is open Monday-Friday, 12-5 p.m.
