Family Tree Festival Family Stage Planning

Organic Arts can create and populate your Family Stage for your Festival, School, Parade, or Community Event!

All we need is the time and dates(s)you want filled and an electrical outlet-
We provide all the rest at a package price to be determined by your needs and budget.

This can be a simple as an area under a tree with blankets spread out for families to picnic and participate to a raised stage with a simple sound system and backdrop.

Programs are multi-generational and family appropriate.

Some of our artists appear in theme-appropriate costumes.

Artists affiliated with bands can also do separate solo family performances since they will already be at your event.

You choose which of our artists most appropriate for your event and we’ll do the rest!

Click on “Cooperating Artists” and the artists individual websites for additional information!

To book a single artist, contact them directly.
For multiple-artist “Family Tree” packages and planning call Organic Arts at 414–702–6053.

Pickin Up Speed

Bluegrass Band

Pickin’ Up Speed, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin based Bluegrass band, has been around since 1982, giving its first public appearance at Milwaukee’s Guest House (a homeless shelter) at Christmas that year. Most of the audience came, looking for a warm place to be. Since that fateful day, Pickin’ Up Speed has grown and morphed into a band that is requested at venues in Wisconsin and the surrounding states.

Pickin’ Up Speed plays traditional Bluegrass, in the style made popular by Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys. Bluegrass music appeals to audiences of all ages, and is the perfect music for your festival or event.

In addition to group performances, Linda Sandersen performs solo or as the duo “Libra” with Poul Sandersen for schools, libraries, elders, and events. (See below)
