Join your friends and neighbors August 5 at the first in a series of Thursday night outdoor community concerts in downtown Fennville. Enjoy a performance by singer- songwriter Darcy Wilkin at the green space across from City Hall. Music begins at 6:30, and attendees are welcome to bring a picnic, get some takeout from our local restaurants, and enjoy an ‘adult beverage’ available for purchase at participating Social District establishments, currently Root and Salt of the Earth. BYO alcohol is not permitted. Concerts are sponsored by the Fennville Downtown Development Authority.
Michigan-based singer-songwriter Darcy Wilkin has a beautiful ear for language and a heart that understands pain and glory. Her shows combine captivating original songs and the traditional tunes and ballads she learned firsthand from masters of the tradition. Darcy released her debut solo album, Bristol, in January of 2020. Produced by traditional music veteran Joe Newberry, Bristol is a collection of songs new and found that underscore the struggles and triumphs of ordinary folks in extraordinary circumstances.
