Rick DeSutter - Original and Vintage Pop

Friday, July 26

Born and raised in the small town of Attica, Indiana, Rick grew up listening to his dad's favorite music - CCR, Beach Boys, and John Denver. At age 13, Rick got together with some buddies to form their first band. From then on, it was in and out of bands without much downtime in between. Rick's most recent project is his original rock band called The Clutter. They've released music for the last 10 years and have played such stages as Elliott Hall of Music, the Taste of Tippecanoe and the Indiana State Fair. Now Rick is taking it back to where it all began, playing his childhood favorites along with some original, vintage style pop songs.

This Friday Night Live will be outdoors on the Fowler House lawn.

Taylor Stirm and Chance Heasty - Celtic

Friday, August 30

Taylor Stirm (uilleann pipes, penny whistle) and Chance Heasty (fiddle) have been playing music around the Midwest since they were children, and they have been playing together for the past six years. They perform the kind of traditional Irish tunes you might hear at a late night session in an Irish pub.

This Friday Night Live will be outdoors on the Fowler House lawn.


Ebony & the Ruckus - Infusion of Jazz, Reggae, and Soul

Friday, September 27

Ebony Barrett-Kennedy is no stranger to stage. Along with her three brothers & mother, she began singing in church at an early age, and traveled regionally singing a cappella gospel. This began an early love of music. She later joined Toussaint and the China Band. With her brother as the front man, they created a soulful sound that swept the east coast. Unique blends of roots and lover’s reggae, funk, and soul presented opportunities to perform with artists such as John Legend, Wyclef Jean, and the Wailers and travel on a USO Tour. She brought this style to Lafayette as the front woman of Ebony & the Ruckus.
