The Michigan Legacy Art Park located at Crystal Mountain—located 30 miles southwest of Traverse City—will be dishing out a Northern Michigan music event every Friday at 7 pm. The events will be located at the park’s outdoor amphitheater. There is a suggested donation of $10 which will go towards funding for the sculptures, grounds and programs at the Michigan Legacy Art Park.
The 2014 Summer Sounds Series is as follows:
The Accidentals — July 11th
Young Traverse City singer-songwriter duo and multi-instrumentalists, Katie Larson and Savannah Buist, have created a sound all their own that is winning praise from music lovers of all genres.
Robin Connell Jazz Trio — July 18th
A night of Jazz with one of Grand Rapids’ best. Robin Connell taught Jazz at Interlochen Arts Camp for twenty years. Honing her craft for more than three decades, she sings and ‘tells the story’ with the depth that comes from true-life experience.
Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys — July 25th
The Flatbellys throwback sound, propelled by Lindsay Lou’s striking delivery, spins a sort of musical magic that meshes Appalachian tradition with a rootsy Michigan vigor.
Lee Murdock — August 1st
Lee Murdock’s Great Lakes songs are made of hard work, hard living, ships that go down and ships that come in. A fluent instrumentalist, Murdock’s musical influences span fifteen generations, combining ragtime, Irish, blues and folk styles with his flair for storytelling. Folk music for the modern era, Lee Murdock’s work is an anthem to the people who live, work, learn and play along the freshwater highways of North America.
Miriam Pico with David Chown and friends — August 8th
Back by popular demand, this nationally recognized vocal/piano duo from Traverse City will perform original songs along with a number of jazz standards and pop songs with two additional band members.
