8pm, Marquette Park, most Thursdays in June & July, FREE

With a spectacular backdrop, our summer concert series takes place on the lawn of a National Historic Landmark, Marquette Park, which is at the foothills of Historic Fort Mackinac downtown across from the marina. Bring a picnic and tune in for some great live folk, rock, country, blues–the best of Americana. All concerts are free. We do recommend bringing a blanket or lawn chairs for your comfort.

Bennett is a 3-piece folk-rock group formed in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2012. Touted as “powerfully original” and “hauntingly beautiful”, their music is as unique as it is authentic and matured well beyond its age, garnering praise from both local and national media outlets. Boasting first place in regional competitions, climbing local music charts and playing alongside acts like The Avett Brothers, OAR, Easton Corbin, Bela Fleck, and more, these boys have quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the music scene. Bennett’s EP release A Brand New Start has propelled them to shows across the U.S. and garnered them positive reviews from both fans and journalists alike. They’ve already kicked off the year with a tour of the eastern U.S. and have plans to record their second studio EP by the fall. It’s nothing but full speed ahead. Their lush string driven sound, seemingly effortless harmonies, and willingness to evolve their style set them apart as somewhere between up-and-coming and (somehow) already there.
