Small Potatoes performing in Harvard

HARVARD – The Woodstock Roundup Radio program will feature the Chicago based folk band Small Potatoes as a special guest during its Sunday show.

Modeled after the popular classic radio show by Garrison Keillor, "A Prairie Home Companion," the program is performed in front of a live audience and streamed online at Harvard Community Radio, www.harvardcommunityradio.com. It takes place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. April 27 at the Starline Factory Building, 300 W. Front St., Harvard. A donation of $10 is suggested. The event is part of a Harvard Community Radio fundraising drive.

Small Potatoes – www.smallpotatoesmusic.com – a duo of Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso, will perform "celtic, cowboy, country and swing" music with a large band. Dancing will be encouraged.

The band is on a national tour and has appeared at major folk festivals throughout the country, including the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Walnut Valley Festival and the Philadelphia Folk Festival. 

Woodstock Roundup began in February to showcase area performers, musicians, comedians and artists. Intermixed with songs, the show features skits and interviews through the use of a rotating ensemble cast.
