The Matchsellers: an ACRES Land Trust concert
Wildwood Nature Preserve, 409 E SR 14, Silver Lake, IN 46982
If you missed the show last year, don’t miss this chance to see the Matchsellers perform in the garage at Wildwood.
The Matchsellers are an alternative bluegrass duo that formed in Leipzig, Germany. Though they met abroad, the group’s members Andrew Morris and Julie Bates are Midwesterners (from Indiana and Kansas City, respectively).
The Matchsellers’ music is stuck somewhere between the electric blues of Chicago and the bluegrass of Kentucky.
Since June 2013 the duo has been on the road performing music full time. Consisting of a mix of traditional, covers and original music, the live performances are sure to please die-hard bluegrass fans as well as those not so familiar with the genre.
The duo has successfully completed self-organized tours through Europe and the US. Their debut EP, Claypool Dog Race is available to stream and download at bandcamp.com and their 2014 release, See the Light and 2015 release, Kosciusko County are available on iTunes.

Tom and Jane Dustin Nature Preserve Barn 1802 Chapman Road, Huntertown, IN 46748 Entrance to the barn is east of the main entrance to the ACRES office.
Pick your own pace as you travel through the Dustin nature preserve. Three groups will leave the Dustin barn — one taking a casual walk through the property, one jogging at a moderate pace, and one motivated group taking a high intensity run up and down the ravine paths of the preserve.
Presented by a volunteer docent guide, Jason Kissel and Mark O’Shaughnessy.
Share the trail with the children in your life. With activities to engage youngsters, you’re bound to experience the preserve anew. If there is one thing Bill loves, it is connecting kids to nature.
Presented by Bill Smith and his grandchildren.
