Kellerville at the Pavilion on Court – August 8, 2014

Kellerville is both real and imagined. On the edge of lake michigan, nestled in the crook of willow trees in Cross Village is a tiny part of town where Lee Dyer and Holly Keller both grew up playing music. After many years of separate creation they formed an original acoustic duo to bring them back to the town that wrought them, and bring a new age to the folks who came before. With songs of storytelling and personal experience, let Lee and Holly paint you a picture of home with a song. Welcome to Kellerville.

E Minor at the Pavilion on Court – August 15, 2014

“Very seldom do I find a song that is powerful enough to force me to slow down, take a breath and drift into a state of sincere self-reflection. For me, E Minor’s Beautiful Dungeon shot a haunting message of conviction strait into my soul.” – NM3 Magazine

Originally from Mackinaw City/Cheboygan areas in Michigan. E Minor is now based in Traverse City, MI. Elizabeth Minor has been a singer/songwriter practically from birth. She started out playing with her father and sisters as a child, and by 11 years old she grew into her own in music. E Minor has played all over Northern and some lower parts of Michigan.

As well as Southern Oregon and Ireland. Catch her playing as a duo, with Bass player Caul Bluhm who is famous for the “Cauldron” upright bass, handcrafted out of an oil drum. And occasionally with a classic array of instruments including guitar, drums and trumpet. Either way your in for a show full of originality and style!
