Sauk Prairie native performing at River Arts


Enjoy outdoor, live music featuring Mackenzie Moore on Friday, September 10th at 6 p.m. at River Arts on Water Gallery (590 Water St, downtown Prairie du Sac). One of Mackenzie Moore’s first memories is singing along to Sheryl Crow’s “Soak Up the Sun” whenever it came on the radio in her mom’s car. A multi-award winning singer/songwriter and Sauk Prairie native, she is driven by the feeling of community that can be created in a room full of strangers with just the help of an acoustic guitar and a heartfelt voice. With roots in rock, folk, americana, and soul, she has been described as having a voice ‘as smooth and smoky as a good glass of scotch.’ Influences include: Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Lissie, Skylar Grey, Fleetwood Mac, Foo Fighters, Jason Isbell, and Taylor Swift. Al Fresco Concerts are held outside in the green space next to River Arts on Water Gallery. Tickets are $15 and must be purchased in advance. Limited seating available. For more information visit riverartsinc.org/moore or call 608-643-5215.
