The History Museum at the Castle will launch a new concert series in a big way.
Those who hope to be part will have to act fast.
The museum on Monday announced that Cory Chisel and Lex Allen will inaugurate the “Our Songs, Our History” concert series with a June 19 performance. The concerts coincide with its exhibit, “Guitar: The Instrument that Rocked the World.” Those who purchase tickets can take in both.
Chisel on his Facebook page on Monday reported that after a matter of hours, the show was down to its final 60 tickets.
Chisel, a 2016 Grammy nominee, emerged from Appleton onto a national stage, though never left home behind. The singer-songwriter helped launch Appleton’s Mile of Music. He’s co-founder of The Refuge Foundation for the Arts.
Allen hails from Milwaukee and was named 2019 Artist of the Year by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry.
The soul pop artist has been gaining buzz nationally, having recently performed at the South by Southwest festival. Last year, he was among Paper magazine’s “50 LGBTQ Musicians You Should Prioritize.”
Performances as part of “Our Songs, Our History” will be recorded and serve as the backbone of Appleton’s first audio archive.
In that spirit, concertgoers will very much become part of Appleton’s history.
Tickets can be purchased here while they last.
