We all know I am a big fan of the Michigan music scene and why not with a line up and winter music festival like this? It’s Mittenfest V and it’s the place to be if you are local or planning on being in the Michigan area – If only I wasn’t 3000+ miles away. :-/
There are crazy amounts of talent performing over the 4 days starting tomorrow. Think about it; Matt Jones, Fields of Industry, This is Deer Country, Frontier Ruckus, Chris Bathgate, Joe Hertler, Drunken Barn Dance, Misty Lyn & The Big Beautiful, my boy Joseph Scott/White Pines, Photographers, Annie Palmer and more. This is seriously one festival that makes this Canadian wish he was either more Easterly located or simply just “of the mitten”.
The festival has changed venues from it original location and is taking place at Woodruffs and it will be a good time, so look into it. So how about a Mittenfest Mixtape? Hells yes.
