Following the Music

Stuff We Love
By Lynda Wheatley | Aug. 6, 2022

We wish we had infinite room in our Dates and Nitelife sections to alert you to every live music show in northern Michigan. Problem is, we print a paper each week—not a book—so we limit our listings to the 13 counties in northwest Lower Michigan we cover. Enter an opportunity to expand your musical horizons, our latest favorite Facebook page, Northern Michigan Live Music Scene. Perhaps you’ll discover that the Lake Fanny Hoe-Down 2 in Copper Harbor, featuring off-the-radar-favorite Joe Nichols and Ricky Skaggs, rolls the same weekend you’ll be camping the Keweenaw (Aug. 26 and 27). Or maybe you’ll end up making plans to head east for a Sunrise Side Music Festival (featuring a few favorite The Voice and America’s Got Talent contestants) near Alpena this weekend. Music lovers, performers, and anyone looking for more reasons to road-trip around our region will not be disappointed.
