Want to do a good deed and party this weekend? Come to Hillbilly Haiku this weekend!
Hillbilly Haiku, the annual Americana Music Festival held at our Brew Pub in Bloomington, seeks out the best grassroots music the Midwest has to offer and pairs it with our own Indiana grassroots beer. This year we’re excited to welcome Lydia Loveless, Kopecky Family Band and Murder by Death to this years stage. All proceeds go to the Sycamore Land Trust, a land conservation organization whose mission is to preserve and restore the beautiful natural heritage of Southern Indiana.
Opening this year’s festival is Lydia Loveless. Loveless is an alternative country singer-songwriter from Columbus, Ohio. Her music combines classic country, honky tonk, and punk rock. We’re stoked to be a stop on her summer long tour. lydialoveless.com
Kopecky Family Band will be showcasing their thoughtful songwriting supported by a diverse background of sound, ranging from clanging tambourines and guitars, to booming percussion, intelligent string arrangements, and triumphant horns. Get to know this unconventional family before they grace our stage at their website kopeckyfamilyband.com.
This year’s headliner is Murder by Death, a five-piece national touring band known for blending rock, Americana noir, and post-punk styles, using an electric cello to create a gothic sound. The band originally formed in Bloomington in 2000 and has since become a household name in the Midwest.

All proceeds benefit the Sycamore Land Trust. Sycamore Land Trust is a regional 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1990. Our mission is to preserve the disappearing natural and agricultural landscape of southern Indiana. To learn more, visit their website.
