Title: “Storm: A Maritime Visual Concert Experience”

Description: It’s fair to say most of the stories of shipwrecks on the Great Lakes have been lost to the ages. Thousands of ships—from sailing schooners to steel freighters—have vanished on these inland seas. The cause of these accidents varies, from collisions to fire and strandings. But November gales are the most notorious, appearing with little notice during the months when shipping companies are scrambling to get their final loads across the lakes before freeze-up.

“Storm” remembers these terrifying gales, and the survivals of sailors who were caught in the tempest. Combining actual eyewitness interviews with spellbinding underwater video, “Storm” fuses contemporary music to create a history lesson that cannot be forgotten.

Ric Mixter hosts “Storm”, transporting the audience back to the age of sail and steam. Dan Hall provides the melody, with lyrics derived from historical accounts of survivors. Dan’s songs are as powerful as the massive modern freighters he heralds in “Thousand Foot Keel”, and his amazing voice provides requiem for those lost to the lakes.

This concert is FREE to the public! Ric Mixter and Dan Hall have played to sold out theaters all over the state. It is not something you want to miss.
