If you like music we have a wide range of options available to us this weekend.
The Dogwood Center is delivering a one-two punch this weekend featuring a pair of performances on Friday and Saturday.
Tonight (Friday) Sandi Patty the renowned contemporary Christian music artist will be taking to the stage. Ms. Patty was forced to cancel her scheduled visit here in early August and her fans are happy to know her show is, at last, making a Newaygo County stop.
Saturday marks the arrival of An Dro, an enticing gathering of talent performing in the club-like atmosphere of the Black Box. Those who were fortunate enough to be at the Luthiers Concert this past winter should recall Jim Spalink performing on the harp. As part of An Dro he expands his instrumental repertoire and together with fiddler extraordinaire Michele Venegas, the multi-instrumental skills of Cara Lieurance, and innovative percussionist Carolyn Koebel creates a sound destined to charm an audience of listeners.
Lean a little more to Rock and Roll? Tetrad is a favorite draw in these parts for those who like their music with a bit of edge. You never know what will be coming up next given Tetrad’s wide swath of musical journeys, but you always know it will be delivered with an abundance of energy. They will be making a stop at the River Stop Saloon in downtown Newaygo Saturday.
And make sure to take advantage of the variety of dining establishments we have available to us in our region. Weekends should have a celebratory feel to them and a morning, midday or evening dining experience provides a little food and a little fun all the while giving the mealmakers among us a bit of a break.
