July 16 
2-5 pm
Ann Stewart and the Banjo Buddies
 based in the Chicagoland area, is one of the most unique and exciting musical attractions today. Don’t let their name fool you. This is not a “banjo band” as their name might imply. This is a high-energy Dixieland band with the banjo as the focal point. Their eclectic style includes Classic Dixieland Jazz and popular standards spanning three decades including swing, blues, novelty tunes and much more presented in a contemporary fashion always sprinkled with a dash of humor. Take a blustery brass section, layer it over a strong rhythm section and tie the whole thing together with a one-of-the-guys front woman and you have The Banjo Buddies Dixieland Band. The Illinois Festival Association named them “Entertainers of the Year” and they have recorded eight albums.
