It’s Big Top’s traditional season kickoff night to conjure the blue magic with top musicians. Our own house band the Blue Canvas Orchestra will play favorites old and new. Severin Behnen leads the famed house band that has graced the Big Top stage since its founding in 1986. They are an eclectic blend of string instruments, driving rhythm section, and stunning voices that together rock the tent with their unique fusion of bluegrass, folk and jazzy blues.
