Great Indoor Folk Festival – The Village at Grand Traverse Commons – February 26, 2017

The Great Indoor Folk Festival will be held in the Mercato from 12-5:30pm. This is a Free, Family Friendly Event. Food Merchants will be offering grab and go items and great prices!

Visit the Great Indoor Folk Festival’s community page to join in on updates and general celebration of folk and acoustic music. www.facebook.com/greatindoorfolkfestival

As many as 1,000 festival-goers attend each year, enjoying free music at this family-oriented event. More than 100 musicians from Northern Michigan’s folk, bluegrass and acoustic music scene will perform at the festival. Folk and acoustic musicians from across northern Michigan and beyond will be playing at seven stages, including those dedicated to “New Folk” and “Kids Music.” In addition to the ‘stages’ spread throughout the ground floor Mercado corridor of Building 50 and Kirkbride Hall, there is also a satellite stage at the Left Foot Charley winery, just west across the parking lot in the Village. Storefronts will be open and performing artists will have CDs for sale at a CD table.

“This is one of the top events of the year for many local musicians and a way to beat the winter blues” says Adair Correll, co-founder of the Northern Michigan Songwriters in the Round, the singer-songwriter association which hosts the event. “As in the past, we’ve added a number of new acts this year to showcase young talent,” he adds.

The event is made possible by volunteers and donations, including the musicians. Come have a great time, listen to wonderful music, and celebrate community.

The festival's roots sprang from the Northern Michigan Songwriters in the Round, which began performing monthly shows at Horizon Books in TC some 20 years ago. The shows continue to this day on the third Friday of each month from 8:30-10:30 p.m., with three musicians trading original songs.
In 2005, the Songwriters launched an annual party and jam in Building 50. The party planted the seed for the Great Indoor Folk Festival, which was an immediate hit with the public at its debut in 2009.
