The 4th Annual Great Indoor Folk Festival takes place this Sunday, February 12 in Building 50 at the Grand Traverse Commons. The festival runs from noon to 5:30, and it is family-friendly and free, though you’re encouraged to donate through “busker buckets.”
There will be 6 different stages with over 50 musicians on seven different stages. An article in this weeks Northern Express is well worth your time. They explain that the regional organization Songwriters in the Round is the driving force behind the event:
“It’s a community of really talented people. It’s an interactive family of musicians,” said Robin Lee Berry of Boyne City.
Berry will once again be part of the roster of performers. She will be singing and playing some of her original compositions along with some judiciously chosen covers.
“It’s a really wonderful experience,” said Berry. “I’ve been part of the Songwriters in the Round since its second year. It’s really brought a lot of musicians out of the woodwork.”
The list of performers is great, and many of them are from Leelanau – some highlights: Louan Lechler, Robin Lee Berry, Kirby, Dane Hyde & Greg Stanton, Dennis Palmer & Allison Brown, Sister Wilene, Cabin Fever, Jim Crockett & Friends, Blind Dog Hank and Dede and the Dreamers.
