St. Cecilia Music Center is proud to present the Fresh Folk Series for its second season and in their 130th year of operation. This series brings some of Michigan’s celebrated folk musicians to the Royce Auditorium, giving these musicians the opportunity to perform in an intimate venue and their fans the chance to hear them in an acoustic concert setting.

This series is a wonderful showcase for the great regional talent that exists here, and it has found a new audience at St. Cecilia.

The 2013-14 Fresh Folk series will begin on November 7, 2013 with husband and wife duo, singer Rachael Davis and bass player Dominic John. In the time of her 10 year solo career Rachael has released 4 albums including one collaboration with the popular Lansing-based American-roots band Steppin’ In It (Dominic) and one live record with long-time musical partner Brett Hartenbach. Davis has lent her voice to countless other recordings including tracks for film, television and guest vocals on other records.

Also on the bill that evening is local favorite Troll for Trout performing an acoustic set.

The Fresh Folk Series includes two additional concerts in 2014 featuring singer/songwriters Drew Nelson, Jen Sygit, Josh Rose, Mark Sala, Jimmie Stagger and May Erlewine on January 9 at 7:30 p.m.

Potato Moon and The Northern Skies will perform on April 10 at 7:30 pm.
Subscriptions to the three Fresh Folk series concerts are $50, with single tickets for each of the individual concerts at $20 for general seating. The Fresh Folk concerts offer a cash bar prior to the concert, during intermission and at the post-concert reception.
