The Barley Jacks with Brian Wicklund are coming to Alliance Church of the Valley in St. Croix Falls, Wis.

Presented by Festival Theatre, the concert is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 25.

Although born in Kyoto, Japan, Wicklund has spent most of his life in the St. Croix Valley. He met most of the other members of the band — Joe Cruz, guitar; Kevin Rowe, bass; and Joel Arpin, percussion— here as well.

The band members play fiddle, guitar, bass and drum who seek to meld their divergent backgrounds of blues and bluegrass, classical and Celtic, R & B and bebop to inspire each other and create something entirely new.

Alliance Church of the Valley is at 1259 State Road 35, St. Croix Falls, Wis.
