Langleys’ wintertime music program

The Betty Strong Encounter Center will host “Music to Chase Away the Winter Blues” with Sioux City musicians Mike Langley, Jack Langley, Walter Peterson and Jonas Langley at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 7. Admission will be free; a reception will follow.

The audience will be treated to an hour of cozy favorites, including: “You Are My Sunshine," “Put Another Log On the Fire" and "Winterwood."

"We treasure the opportunity to ring in the New Year playing music that lifts spirits and puts a big smile on our faces,” says Mike Langley.

Father and son singers/songwriters Jack and Mike Langley have been performing together onstage for almost 40 years, traveling from Sioux City to Nashville, Tenn., to Vienna and back. Mike’s son, Jonas, recently joined his dad and grandfather as percussionist.

Peterson describes himself as an “old time” music and folklore enthusiast, Lewis and Clark-period re-enactor, “penny-farthing cyclist” and multi-instrumentalist folksinger.
