Manitou Fest offers three different events
The Manitou Music Festival will feature three programs in the next week.
Trina Hamlin & Mulebone will bring its hard-driving blues to Studio Stage at Lake Street Studios on Sunday.
The 5 p.m. concert will feature Hamlin, a master of the blues harmonica as well as an inspired songwriter and guitarist. The group does it all with guitar, stomp-board, flutes and a conch.
On Tuesday the Glen Lake Summer Singers will take stage. Patrick Kuhl, summer organist at the Omena Presbyterian Church, directs the summer group which is 60 members strong. Summer Singers, an enthusiastic volunteer group of 60 plus voices, will perform a variety of music in a fun, free concert.
There is no admission for the Summer Singers concert to be held at 7 p.m. at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church.
Next Wednesday, Aug. 8, country and folk artist Ronny Cox will appear on the Lake Street Studio stage at 8 p.m. Cox first appeared in film as the guitarist in the “dueling banjos” scene in the movie Deliverance.
Tickets for the Hamlin and Cox concerts are $15 apiece. No charge for students 18 and under.
In the event of rain, Hamlin’s concert will be moved to the Glen Arbor township hall; the Cox concert will be held at the Empire Town Hall.
