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.

To purchase tickets, call 231.334.5100

We have been guests for the past 20 years. Our daughter was married there in May. It was magical! We look forward to many more years of memories with you!!

We checked out yesterday! It was a wonderful vacation, our accommodations at Fiddler's Pond were beautiful, the grounds were amazing and staff was excellent! We'll be back!

Enjoying the Homestead at this moment.

Can't wait!😎

At long last, the first section of new boardwalk is down. The bollards/illumination posts await their assignment. We're so excited for this beautiful addition to the beachfront experience. ... See MoreSee Less

Looks nice and I like that you opened up the beach from the pool. Hopefully the beach will be handicap accessible when the boardwalk is done? I had a problem getting on the beach yesterday...I couldn't step over all the boulders in the way and there was nothing to hang onto. Might want to clear a path. And while I am on the subject- you might want to post some signs and the menu for Cafe Manitou. I know it's there but you can't see it from the pool. Glad the cafe window is open but hope it won't just be ice cream. Can we have some salads and sandwiches for hungry swimmers?

WAY overdue....

C Don Paulsell, check it out!
