Free. Family Friendly. Every Thursday night this summer in Downtown Decorah!
Join for an evening of music on Washington Street with Holding Hemlock! This Lawn Chair Night is sponsored by The Getup, with support from KWLC Radio. Join as we welcome back Luther College students, gearing up for Fall Semester!
Holding Hemlock is a three-piece Luther College student band consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Spencer Cameron(‘24), drummer Micah Miller (‘23), and bassist Jack Kates (‘24). While Holding Hemlock’s sound is largely based in alternative rock, they also draw from the genres of hard rock and folk during their set. Along with their mixing of genres, their primary arrangement of instruments is also unique.
Lawn Chair Night has been a program of Downtown Decorah Betterment for more than 25 years. It’s now made possible by DDBA in partnership with Visit Decorah Tourism and Impact Coffee, along with generous contributions from top sponsor AJ Realty and more than 10 supporting sponsors. This free, public event features both local and regional talent. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair and their toe tappin’ shoes. In 2023, three performances will take place at the Courthouse and ten will be on Washington Street. For the Washington Street shows, attendees are encouraged to purchase a beverage at Impact Coffee, our event partner.
In the event of rain, the Courthouse events will be cancelled or moved to a different location and the Washington Street events will be moved inside Impact Coffee. Rain announcements will be made on Facebook’s Visit Decorah page and the Downtown Decorah Betterment page.
