The Crane Wives
Sunday, June 11 @ 8:30pm Rackham Stage
This female fronted indie rock outfit from Grand Rapids has amassed a devout following since they formed in 2010. Featuring beautiful three-part harmonies, a solid and inventive rhythm section, deft banjo playing, and good humor on stage, this quartet creates organic music that is both accessible and innovative. Live shows feature contagious energy and songs that range from whisper-quiet ballads to danceable grooves. Their latest release, Foxlore, came out in 2016, and their song “Easier” won the 2012 Grand Rapids Art Prize in the Folk/Country category. Don’t miss the return of a festival highlight.
