Hiawatha is so very thankful for our viewers who are able to make a contribution to these wonderful musicians and the Co-op. We sincerely appreciate and value each dollar that is given and we know that all musicians are appreciative of the opportunity to play and gain income as well! We can’t thank you enough!
Please join us for our virtual concert series, Live from The Fold, on our Facebook page! We are pleased to offer our series with our local favorite musicians, some favorites from Michigan and beyond! We are pleased to introduce our faithful followers to a wide range of traditional music and performers!
It will be presented every Thursday from 7:00pm – 8:00pm.
Coming Up – October 1st – Sarah Mittlefehlt & John Gillette
Join Hiawatha Music Co-op’s “Live At The Fold” this week featuring our own, John Gillette & Sarah Mittlefehldt. John and Sarah are grounded in the old field of grassroots music and nourished by the sounds of the 21st century. Helping set spot fires of locally bred music by hosting picking parties called Whiskey Fridays, they have blazed a trail of bonafide home-spun singing and award-winning songwriting from New England to the Midwest to the South and back again. Their songs stand out in the open, stretching, and growing with each new experience – firmly rooted old sounds call out anew.
Check them out on their website and Facebook page:
Coming Up – October 8th – Zoe Speaks
This dynamic and entertaining band hails from Kentucky. Some of our Board Members heard them at the 2019 Folk Alliance Region Midwest conference. We were so taken by their music, we couldn’t wait to introduce them to our Hiawatha faithfuls. We hope we can present them ‘live’ at the Fold or Festival or other Hiawatha event in the future!
Zoe Speaks consists of Kentuckians Mitch Barrett and Carla Gover, their daughter, fiddler/bassist/vocalist Zoey Barrett, and her multi-instrumentalist husband Arlo Barnette, who draw on their deep roots in the region to put their own spin on everything from traditional ballads to finely-crafted originals. Close family harmonies are a defining feature of their sound, and while their music is drenched in the flavor of the mountain music they grew up with, they skirt the cutting edge of tradition. Their music follows in the tracks of socially conscious Kentucky writers like Jean Ritchie and John Prine, with a distinctly progressive bent. A veritable songwriting powerhouse, their song contest wins include the Telluride Troubador Contest, Merlefest’s Chris Austin Contest, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and Kerrville New Folk, among others. A staple on the Kentucky music scene for over a decade with three successful CDs under their belt, they are newly back together with a brand-new album called Wings. They accompany themselves on guitar, claw hammer banjo, upright bass, and sometimes dulcimer and clogging feet.
