Grand Haven’s Music at the Museum series is back.
For the third season, the partnership between two Grand Haven organizations – Red House Concert Series and the Tri-Cities Historical Museum – will produce a full calendar of eclectic concerts at the museum from December through April.
The uber-popular series — which sells out quickly — boasts a fresh lineup and a bit of a new approach, with more nationally known artists than in seasons past.
Maryland native and Austin-based indie-folk singer-songwriter Joe Pug will kick the series off with special guest Juanita Stein on Dec. 8. The rest of the series features headliners such as Chicago alt-folk outfit The Way Down Wanderers, Cadillac’s Luke Winslow King, Washington D.C. Celtic rock/bluegrass/Americana and Scythian and up-and-coming soul/roots act The War & Treaty from Albion, who will share the stage with The Appleseed Collective.
“We have to keep things fresh and new for this area,” said Jack Clark, co-promoter of Red House Concert Series along with founder Marianne Fischer. “This year’s lineup is actually a little more nationally known, but at the same time, maybe not as locally recognized. We want to give our attendees shows we know they will enjoy, and I think this season will do just that.”
Fischer said the success of the museum series has raised expectations and interest from fans in the Grand Haven area.
“We are definitely getting people very excited,” she said. “Many are champing at the bit to hear the lineup for this season. … We want to put that out there for all of them so they can enjoy all of this as much as we do. It’s personal to us: We believe personally in the music, and the people who play it.”
Added Clark: “The music we book to perform, we believe in 100 percent: the music, the people, everything.”
Abbei Monroe, membership coordinator for the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, said she’s confident the community has gotten a proper feel for what the concert series offers and that this is the year for everything to truly come together.
“It’s a really cool feeling, to know that an idea has truly come to fruition, the way that you really hoped it would,” Monroe said. “And now, let’s continue to grow, and continue to bring in super cool music, and continue to offer our ticket holders the best experience that we can possibly offer. … Everyone knows if it’s a Music at the Museum concert, it’s going to be a quality performance.”
Consequently, many of the shows are expected to sell out quickly.
Season passes will be available in limited quantities, covering the entire season. A pre-sale event for members of the Tri-Cities Historical Museum will run Sept. 12-24, with members paying $115 for a season pass. Ticket sales open to the general public on Sept. 26, with season passes priced at $140. Get info online at tri-citiesmuseum.org.
