A wintry weekend blast of ice and snow didn’t keep country, hip hop, blues or rock stars from their appointed concert rounds from GR to Holland to Kalamazoo. The images at Local Spins.

As B93 Barn Party headliner and Canadian country star Lindsay Ell puts it in one of her hits, that’s “All Alright.”
So while attendance was down at Walker’s DeltaPlex Arena on Saturday due to the storm, those folks on hand made the most of the celebration, cheering on artists who were appreciative of those who weathered the weather for sets by Ell, Caylee Hammack, Tenille Arts and West Michigan’s own Bari Lee and the Kari Lynch Band.
