Warren Nelson and Friends


Warren Nelson is the Father of Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua and the writer or co-writer of some of our most beloved original productions and compositions. He stood as the ringmaster of the canvas tent show for nearly 25 years. Warren returns to the Big Top stage for a grand night of music and memories by the self-proclaimed “Song and Chance Man.” His original songs still resonate from the tent at the hands of the BCO including “Autumn Fancy,” “Riding the Wind.” “Keeper of the Light” and “Over to Old LaPointe.” Warren released a memoir in 2012 entitled “Ballyhoo! Back Stage Big Top” and his latest album “Song in My Hat” was also released in 2012. His latest production “Take Me To The Islands” hits the stage this summer.
