The past few years, Chris has focused on songwriting, with songs that are often personal, and some that speak to the issues of the day.

The Wee Heavies Nearly Annual Holiday Sing!

Focal Point

Yes! They are back for their first whole show on our stage since before Covid! So come one come all, we absolutely guarantee your complete satisfaction! The Wee Heavies are a primarily a cappella group started in 2014. They were drawn to the traditional music of Scotland & Ireland because they felt that they could all really relate to the main themes of traditional Celtic music: drinking, working, fighting, love, and drinking. (Truth be told, their bass is a tee-totaler and has never been drunk in his life, but he makes up for it with the fighting.) The Heavies love nothing more after a long (and typically futile) day of whaling on the Mississippi near their home base of St. Louis than to pick up a frosty glass, reminisce about the days of the Jacobite rebellion, and sing in earth-shaking, heart-rending four-part harmony about the complexities of coal mining.
