The Helen Highwater String Band at the Juliette Opry in Juliette
The Helen Highwater String Band has got to be the best band name Ive heard in at least five years. This band always looks like they are having a good time -- because they are!

Their combination of guitar, bass, fiddle and mandolin creates a whimsical goodness that could only come from a string band. All ages. 7:30 p.m. $22.
