Point 5, an Americana acoustic band, is one of Southwest Wisconsin’s best kept musical secrets and on Friday, May 10th, 7:30 pm, they’ll perform a Mother’s Day Weekend concert at Folklore Village.
While the secret is coming out (they were highlighted on WPR’s Simply Folk this year), the band still loves to play local Dodgeville and Mineral Point bars, benefit concerts and local southwestern stages. The band consists of Monica and Aaron Dunn (harmony vocals, rhythm guitar), Paul Biere (banjo, dobro, harmony vocals), Andy Hatch (mandolin) and Carole Spelic (stand up bass, harmony vocals).
With impeccable and soothing vocal harmonies from the Dunn partnership and tasteful instrumental breaks from Andy, Paul and Carole, the band moves seamlessly through an array of songs and acoustic styles, including bluegrass, folk, originals, and gospel, with creativity and verve. They truly let the songs and lyrics shine through, leaving the listener with the emotional impact of the song itself. Aaron’s original songs conjure up picturesque scenes of the landscape of Southwest Wisconsin and lately, Point 5 has been performing more and more of these heartfelt originals.
