August 2023

Ruth and Max Bloomquist  



We wanted to get this out a bit early as August feels like it starts early for us.
On Saturday July 29 we are excited to play a 12 noon set at the Tamarack Music Festival in Morley Michigan. A new experience for us, this smallish festival looks like a lot of fun.
Then the FIRST WEEKEND OF AUGUST starts with an outdoor concert at the Log Cabin Stage in Kaleva, MI (7:00). Then on Saturday Aug. 5 we play a private party that we have played before that is always a good time. Then on Sunday August 6 we play a concert at the beautiful Muskegon Victorian Garden/Phoenix Continuum (2:00). (This one is always fun. Don't forget your chairs.)
On Wednesday August 9 (after two days off) we travel up to Traverse City to play an outdoor concert (7:00) at the Peninsula Community Library out on the Old Mission Peninsula. Bring chairs and maybe a picnic. In case of rain we move indoors.
On Tuesday August 15 at 8:00 eastern we will join two other acts in a Zoom concert for Music My Mother Would Not Like. These promoter/broadcasters do a great job of showcasing music you might not but perhaps should hear every day.
On Saturday August 19 we provide music for the semi-private Smith Bayou Chili Cookout. (If you know, you know.)
We finish up the month on August 25 with a 7:00 concert at the White River Light Station in Whitehall,MI. This is a beautiful location at the lighthouse on the channel between White Lake and Lake Michigan and a great way for us to finish the last full month of summer.
Where did the time go?
