Galactic Cowboy Orchestra

Galactic Cowboy Orchestra

A Decorah-favorite returns! Whether you call it country, swing, progressive-rock, jazz, bug-eyed bluegrass, or interstellar folk music, there is no mistaking Galactic Cowboy Orchestra’s liberating melting pot of genres elevated by riff magic, hummable melodies and groovy jams all grounded in a jazz bedrock. BYOB okay!

GCO features Dan Neale on guitar, Lisi Wright on fiddle, John Wright on bass, and Alec Tackmann on drums, percussion and vocals. They’ve been compared to Kind Crimson, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Dixie Dregs, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones but they’re undeniably and uniquely the Galactic Cowboy Orchestra.

Poetry Slam


With the Writer’s Festival at Luther College and fantastic readings at Dragonfly Books and the Decorah Public Library, it is a weekend of celebrating words in Decorah! And, kicking it all off is our first Poetry Slam of the new school year.

Emceed by local celebrities and showcasing a featured artist, ArtHaus Poetry Slams welcome all to participate in the non-competitive “Original Voices” (3 minutes or less of your own poetry) or the “Slam” (a good-natured competition complete with prizes and Applause-o-Meter). Call ArtHaus or visit us online to sign up to perform. Recommended for adults, ages 16 and up.

Our Slams are not-to-be-missed, likely-to-sell-out events so come early and stay late!
