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.
Gifts or Creatures is the musical pursuit of husband-wife Brandon and Bethany Foote. The couple fuses a blend of midwestern folklore, old world history and cinematic soundscapes to create a trove of antique Americana. The Lansing based act assembled a team of Michigan’s finest musicians for their sophomore release, Yesteryear Western Darkness(released September 3, 2013). The ensemble focused recording is brimming with electric guitars, Wurlitzer piano, pump organ, pedal steel and vibraphone. Throughout the record, Brandon’s songs survey a wide gamut of historical topics and the ever-changing scenery of 21st century America.
