Tunde Olaniran, Sister Wife and Lizzo opened the inaugural Daytrotter music festival, Daytrotter Downs, last night in Davenport.

The music continues Thursday with Iowa-born William Elliott Whitmore and John Paul White of the Civil Wars.

Also, don’t miss Wisconsin songwriter J.E. Sunde (formerly of The Daredevil Christopher Wright) and Atlanta folk artist Liza Anne, sharing the bill with Sun Club (and eight other bands!) this Saturday.

Choose your shows wisely and double-check your destination. The fest is running at three venues and some shows are already sold out.
