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.
The Accidentals, Katie Larson and Savannah Buist are creating quite a name for themselves among music lovers of all genres. They met in 2011 at their public high school. Katie, a freshman cello player, “playing up” in the Philharmonic Orchestra, and Savannah, a junior, Concert Master violinist, volunteered for a class assignment that threw them together for their first rehearsal- and The Accidentals were born.
In 2012 these two ladies auditioned for and snagged a coveted spot in the first ever singer-songwriter major at Interlochen Center for the Arts Academy. Around the same time they released their first self-produced album, Tangled Red and Blue. In early reviews of Tangled Red and Blue, Kristi Kates of Northern Michigan Magazine was the first to say what everyone was thinking– “It’s difficult to believe that music this accomplished is being crafted by two talents who are still in high school -but that’s The Accidentals’ story.”
