National Writers Series presents an evening with Tom Stanton
Friday, August 25, 2017, 7 pm
City Opera House, Traverse City
Guest host: Ron Jolly
Price- $5.50 students, $15.50 general

A conversation that will expose the chilling history of a Detroit like you’ve never seen.
They say that nothing is more American than baseball and apple pie. In his latest book, Terror in the City of Champions, award-winning writer Tom Stanton weaves a masterful narrative latticework, dishing up a nefarious slice of terror, stardom, and baseball.

Stanton joins us to discuss his New York Times bestseller in Sports, which was also a top-seller in Michigan’s independent bookstores last year. Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss called the book a “captivating slice of American history.”

Stanton is a professor of journalism at the University of Detroit Mercy and a former Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan. He lives in New Baltimore, Michigan.

May Erlewine Solo at the WBC

May Erlewine Solo at the WBC

Sep 7, 7:00pm - Sep 7, 10:00pm

The Workshop Brewing Company
221 Garland St, Warehouse District
Traverse City, MI  49684 Map

Local musician May Erlewine returns to the Workshop Brewing Company!

Some people might call May Erlewine “Michigan’s darling songbird”, but her songs have traveled far beyond her home state. One of the most prolific and passionate songwriters of her generation, May’s music has touched the hearts of people all over the world. Her words have held solace for weary hearts, offered a light in the darkness and held a lot of space for the pain and joy of being alive in these times. When she starts to sing, there’s no way around it. Welcome to the moment, everyone.

Raised in a family rich with art and music, May began writing songs and playing them for the people at a very young age. Her journeys have taken her all over the world, from street corners to renowned stages, May has performed for all walks of life. In her travels Erlewine came to know the land and the pulse of the people. Her songs show a very real connection and concern with everyday folk.

May pulls from a wide variety of sounds and influences to create her unique musical landscape. You’ll hear traditional folk roots, old time country swing, soul and rock and roll but mostly she’s inspired by the hearts of the people and the one in her chest. This music is about feeling and it’s about telling life’s stories.

May is a member of the Earthwork Music Collective, a group of independent artists who share resources and talents to raise both community and self-awareness, along with facilitating and encouraging original music in the state of Michigan. Earthwork was created as a means to form a viable alternative path to the conventional music industry. Through collaboration, the collective strives to incorporate efforts of environmental advocacy, social justice, creative empowerment and community building into the core functioning of a musical profession.

Miriam Pico
Over the past two decades, Miriam has taken advantage of many varied performance opportunities that have come her way, with the hope of gaining experience and living life to the fullest. Her performances have been requested and celebrated all over Michigan as well as in Chicago, New York, Indiana, Ohio, Seattle, Key West and Puerto Rico, with more locations in the works.

The Whistle Stop Revue
The Whistle Stop Revue is a Progressive/Bluegrass/Americana Band from Detroit area, Michigan. The band is known for its unique and eclectic style, which fuses elements of bluegrass, blues, rock, country, jazz, and other forms of music in their live performances. The Whistle Stop Revue have been touring regionally throughout Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana, and Illinois, playing over 350 shows at notable festivals and brewpubs and events since their inception in Spring of 2012. They released their self titled album in early 2014 gaining air play on radio stations in several Midwest markets including, Detriot's WDET and Ann Arbor's 107.1. 2015 saw the band visit and return to many notable venues festivals including: Hoxeyville Music Festival, Porcupine Mountain Music Festival, Royal Oak's Arts Beats and Eats, Blue Water Folk Society's Thumbfest, Niles Bluegrass Festival, Bell's Eccentric Cafe, Short's Brewery, The historic Ark in Ann Arbor and many more. In 2017 the band is continuing extensive touring and hopes and has released a new album, 'Further On Down The Line', which is available at shows or at CDbaby.

The Ragbirds
For years, “home” was a place The Ragbirds rarely visited. The band’s music — a genre-bending hybrid of indie-pop melodies, global rhythms and songwriting styles influenced from all over the world — was as broad as their audience, which stretched from the group’s hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan, to the shores of Osaka, Japan (where they scored a Number One pop hot with the song “Book of Matches”). Show by show, in venues ranging from rock clubs and performing arts centers to festivals encompassing everything from bluegrass to electronica, The Ragbirds developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, high-spirited live bands in roots music.
Written and recorded in the wake of the birth of co-founders Erin Zindle and Randall Moore’s first child, ‘The Threshold & The Hearth’ — the band’s fifth studio album, out March 25 on Rock Ridge Music – adds another dimension to the band’s catalog. It’s an album that explores the ways in which love and family relationships can weather the storms of life, year after year. An album that asks questions. An album that offers an answer, too: hope.

Bay Area Recycling for Charities will help as we aim for a zero-waste event. BARC, FLOW (For Love Of Water), and Blackbird Arts will benefit from event proceeds.

Some of our neighboring businesses will also have special sales and other events on the day. So come experience the Warehouse District Rising- a super fun way to round out your summer!

Hotel Indigo is the premier sponsor of the event. We also thank Traverse City Tourism for their support, and the City of Traverse City for helping to make our new street a reality.

Traverse City, MI  49684 Map

Of her own volition, Grand Rapids-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Mainville dove headfirst into the world of music as early as the fifth grade, when she had begun playing viola and upright bass in orchestra. Following her first Wheatland Festival in 2012, Mainville fell in love with the idea of performing her own songs on stage, which eventually inspired her 2014 gypsy swing and baroque pop debut EP, Full Steam
Ahead featuring members of The Accidentals.
Since the release of her first solo output, Olivia has forged a unique path, becoming known alongside her band, the Aquatic Troupe, for their energized, dynamic performances and their gargantuan musical talent. Olivia Mainville & the Aquatic Troupe’s debut album, Maybe the Saddest Thing, released on December 10th, 2015 with a special guest appearance by none other than David Bowie’s bandleader and lead guitarist, Gerry Leonard —their multifarious, enthusiastic delivery is sure to be a hit with listeners everywhere.
