Live At The Fold, Virtual Concert Series

Posted on

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 as we host a virtual concert series on our own Facebook page! We are pleased to offer this sampling of traditional music performers during the shutdown of all live music events. We are featuring our favorite local traditional music performers and reaching out to regional and national performers as well. Our concert is presented each Thursday evening at 7:00 pm EST. Donations are accepted and greatly appreciated but not required. Donations are divided between the performer and the Hiawatha Music Co-op. Every donation helps us all “keep the music going” and our spirits up!

Coming up next on April 15th, Dan Truckey!  Dan has been a long-time supporter of Hiawatha Music Co-op, having served as Area Coordinator for Festival Workshops, a member of the Concert/Event Committee, and collaborator between HMC and the Beaumier UP Heritage Center among many other roles. He’s also played with local irish/celtic band, The Knockabouts for many years!  

In the fall of 1988, Daniel Truckey played his first solo performance at Whiskers on Presque Isle Ave in Marquette, Michigan. Since that time, Whiskers has been torn down but Dan is still writing, recording, and playing his music. Over the past 33 years, he has performed his songs in clubs, coffee houses, bars, festivals, and concert halls from Connecticut to Nebraska, and over the past 14 years has made Marquette his home base.  Dan grew up in a very musical family and spent his early years in Flushing, Michigan, before moving to Wakefield in the western U.P. at the age of 11. At the age of 17, his family moved to Munising and he then attended Northern Michigan University, graduating in 1990 with a degree in History and minor in music. He then lived in Ohio, New York, Connecticut, and Iowa before he moved back to Michigan in 2002. After several years in Traverse City, he made his way back to Marquette, where he runs the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center at NMU.  Besides his life as a museum curator, Dan is a singer-songwriter and musician who has played in everything from jazz/blues combos to rock bands and most recently with the Celtic trio, The Knockabouts. All along, he has also carved out a life as a solo artist and has recorded six solo albums and one as a duo with his brother Drew Truckey, the 2008 album by The Truckey Boys, “The Family Hour.” His most recent album, “The Incurable Romantic” features 15 songs about the romance of life, in all its many forms. The album is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and many other streaming services.
