• On Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. the Acorn Theater will hold its Open Mic Night hosted by The Pinola Plowboys.
For too long they labored in the hot Hoosier sun, hammering their plowshares into musical axes they emerged as a sound sensation from the bowels of northern Indiana. Their noses no longer to the grindstone, their hands no longer to the plow they have set their calloused fingers to the steel strings of bass, banjo and guitar... The Pinola Plowboys have arrived at The Acorn to sow their songs and cultivate their country humor with the audience and musicians of Three Oaks. Heading up the team is Doug Tyler on banjo aside Dan Moser on the stand-up bass as they now pull the plow for whip crackin’ Pete Nye on guitar and lead vocals.
