First Street Community Center's Uptown Theatre will be hosting Gabe and Richard Baillargeon in a rare father and son duo performance with many special guest performers.  Be a part of the audience for this landmark, informal, recorded concert!

Iowa-based Richard Baillargeon has entertained Iowa since the earliest days of the Waubeek Trackers Band. That would be 1979. The Waubeek Trackers opened for acts including Leon Redbone, Joan Armitrading, Bob Gibson, Jim Post and were underwritten for concerts around Iowa by the Iowa Arts Council Performing Artists grants for two years.

Richard’s son Gabe Baillargeon has played since childhood where family music was a daily habit. His talent was delivered directly through the gene pool, enhanced by his natural enthusiasm and warm humor. Gabe was a fixture at the Stone City General Store Sundays before he moved. Gabe now lives in Boulder, CO.
