It was then that he began learning some old standards, popular music of the early 1900s. Pete is also fond of folk, blues, country, and pop. He plays guitar in various styles, fingerpicking, flatpicking, and slide. He also has a wide range of wonderful original tunes.

Rich Prezioso

11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Rich grew up in Fort Lee, N.J. He believes he may be the only person in his home town who can yodel. He says he wore out a lot of records and a few turntables listening and learning anything from Bill Monroe to the Allman Brothers. He has played blues, country, folk, and rock in no particular order as a solo and in both acoustic and electric bands. He studied classical guitar and composition, and worked for five years as a jingle writer in Chicago, writing music for Cap'n Crunch Cereal, Gatorade, and Domino's Pizza, among others. He has gained a reputation as a songwriter and as a "guitar whiz" for his multi-styled approach to the instrument (a label he says he'll only accept when the endorsements start rolling in) and has participated in workshops with players like Steve Kaufmann and Pat Kirtley, and Stephen Bennett.

MUSIC AT THE MARKET

Music at the Market, brought to you by Off Square Music, is a parade of wonderful performers at the Woodstock Farmers Market. What a great way to shop for local seasonal produce and locally crafted items, enjoying the music while you greet friends.

Every week we feature musical performances from local artists. The music styles range from country to pop to jazz. Many are solo performances but we also have several full bands. We’ve had performers from as far away as Germany play for us at the Square.

Woodstock Farmers Market summer season

The Woodstock Farmers Market has vendors surrounding the Historic Woodstock Square on all four sides as well as throughout the park in the center of the Square. Saturday market runs from April-October, and Tuesday market runs from June-September. Market hours are 8 a.m.-1 p.m. We are a Producers Only Market, meaning everything you purchase is grown or produced directly by the vendor you are purchasing from.

Woodstock Farmers Market winter season

The Woodstock Farmers Market winter market is held in Building “D” at the McHenry County Fairgrounds. Along with our usual farm market offerings, we will have several Artisans at each market. The market runs mid-October through April on select Saturdays. Market hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The winter market gathers on select Saturdays in Building “D” at the McHenry County Fairgrounds. There was not live music at the indoor market during the 2021-22 winter season due to COVID-19 concerns.

Hope to see you at the Market!
