Live At The Fold, Virtual Concert Series
September 22, 2020
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
Next up on November 19th – we welcome back to our stage, Mustard’s Retreat, first heard on our Festival Main Stage in 1993!
Mustard’s Retreat has always sung the songs they enjoyed and cared about, regardless of the trends of the music industry and pop culture. They are committed to simply being themselves, not chasing fame or brass rings, while delighting in and connecting with their audiences as if they were family. The honesty of what they present onstage and the extensive body of outstanding original songs and recordings all contribute to a fiercely loyal audience that continues to grow. “Music to cure what ails you” was how one reviewer in the 1970s described them, and that is as true now as it was then.
They’ve traveled more than a million miles and performed more than 6,000 shows, from pig roasts and pool parties to Lincoln Center Out of Doors, The Barns at Wolftrap and the Kennedy’s Center’s Millennium Stage.
Their performances are always joyful and uplifting, as well as intelligent, thought provoking and insightful. They’ve recently begun referring to their career and touring as “Defiantly Hopeful.” In part due to their long career, but more as a statement about what the music has meant to them. “Folk music is, at its heart, defiantly hopeful!” Tamulevich says. “We came of age in the 60s, at the confluence of Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan and the singer/songwriter revolution. We care much more about what we do and stand for and finding that common ground with our audiences, than fame or money: this is our community of choice, and we consider ourselves so fortunate to be here.”
Coming up on December 3rd, Children’s Area Festival favorite and local performer, Corinne Rockow
Coming up December 10th Holiday Show with local celtic/irish band, The Knockabouts
