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.

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.
