ZZ Top with special guest Austin Hanks – Interlochen Arts Festival – June 1, 2017


ZZ Top
With more than 45 years of hit songs, ZZ Top is an instantly recognizable and undeniably cool American institution. The 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees bring their own brand of blues and rock to the Kresge stage for what is sure to be a stellar presentation of many of their classic hits. With songs ranging from “La Grange” to “Sharp Dressed Man” and more, this legendary trio will rock the house with music designed to get you on your feet. Get ready for an evening full of red-hot Texas boogie and blues as this “Little Ol’ Band from Texas” does what they do best.

Austin Hanks
His deep, dirty southern rock hits, including “Sucker Punch,” “Alabama Clay,” “Ashes to Ashes” and others, have appeared on the popular FX series Sons of Anarchy. But Alabama-born singer-songwriter Austin Hanks has been touring and playing shows with legendary rock icons like ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company and dozens more for years. His music has been described as “rockin’ country soul,” and he brings every drop of his self-descriptive blues background to the stage with every song.

June 1, 2017 – 8:00pm
Ticket price(s):$65 Platinum, $60 Gold, $55 Silver, $48 Bronze

4000 Hwy M-137 South
Interlochen, MI  49643 Map

Revitalize your existing fiber roving or design your own colors and textural effects for a special project, while exploring the drum carder in this one day workshop. The process of fiber blending known as drum carding uses a drum of tooth covered cloth to separate, align, and combine fibers in preparation to be dyed, spun, or felted. Custom blends for specific textures, color combinations, and striping effects can be created on the drum carder, giving you more control of your project's outcome. Drum carder vocabulary and procedures will be explained, followed by a discussion of fiber types and how each type of carding cloth affects the processing of the fiber. You will apply this knowledge to achieve a desired visual effect in your spun or felted project. Methods of carding will include tweeds, striped/gradated, and textural batts. Handouts will be provided with instructions and suggestions for methods spinning or felting your freshly made batts. The possibilities are limitless!

Registration Fee: $110 (includes $15 materials fee)

Blackthorn – The Homestead – Music on the Mountain – June 22, 2017


Blackthorn welcomes you to the rich tapestry of Celtic music.

Traditional songs of emigration, sea shanties, lively jigs and reels, and ancient airs combine with some of Ireland’s best contemporary songs for a musical experience that captures the history and legend of Ireland and its people.

What makes a Blackthorn show unique is the variety of tunes, tempos and textures. Each member of the band plays multiple instruments, including wooden flute, accordion, tin whistle, five string banjo, cittern, bones and more. These instruments complement the lead vocal of Belfast native Richard McMullan and the band’s tight blend of four part harmony.

Blackthorn has played throughout the Great Lakes region since 1984. Based in Detroit, they can be found regularly at O’Mara’s Pub and Restaurant in Berkley. Other venues include concert halls, universities and festivals, including main stage appearances at the prestigious Michigan Irish Festival and world renowned Milwaukee Irish Fest.


The concert begins at 7pm. Transportation via chair lift or six-passenger golf cart begins at 6pm. Cash bar and snacks are available for purchase. Coolers are not permitted.
In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held in Mountain Flowers Lodge
.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
