First FridaysRachael Davis—Michigan’s Songstress

Multi-instrumentalist Rachael Davis is as renown for her expressive—and explosive—voice as she is for uniting the often disparate worlds of folk, blues, country, and pop. Because Davis has been swayed by so many different types of music, she says, "My slant on acoustic music can be explained by a mixed cassette tape that my father played during my early childhood while driving in our family’s Chevy Cavalier station wagon we nicknamed Iggy. On one side of the cassette was the soundtrack for the film The Big Chill. On the other was John Hartford’s Areoplane." Today Davis describes her music as ‘Motown-Banjo’.

Rachael DavisDavis has lent her voice to countless recordings for friends, film soundtracks, and even video games, but it is her intuitive and empathetic understanding of folk music—“the music of folks” as she calls it, and her original and thoughtful songwriting voice that has earned her fans around the U.S.

Recently she has collaborated in the critically acclaimed supergroup, The Sweetwater Warblers, comprised of Rachael Davis, Lindsay Lou, and May Erlewine, all three premiere Michigan-grown songbirds.

Rachael Davis now lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband, critically acclaimed bassist, Dominic John Davis, with whom she performs as The Davis Duo. Together they cultivate a diverse community steeped in music, art, travel and love, and are raising a son and daughter at the center of it all.

The Witch's Ball

My Air Productions Halloween Puppet Show

Halloween Puppet ShowThe Shadows become longer, the evenings become chilled and there’s a crispness in the air that sparks our imagination of bumps in the night and those things that give fright. Even the biggest little kid loves a good scare and the fun that Halloween brings. Please join Wilma Witch and all her ghoulish friends for The Witch’s Ball. This fun show is for young and old alike. What an amazing addition to your celebrations this Halloween Season.

Joey Emory started his Puppetry adventure when he was 5 years old with a puppet show at his elementary school. The My Air Productions Puppet Barn has been in existence for going on 8 years now entertaining young and old alike here in the Muskegon/Whitehall area. As Joe says "There is no such thing as too old for puppets, just ask the Muppets. And our Witch’s Ball Halloween Show is no exception to that rule. Our responses have grown to a point that we felt our theater venue was too small for this show. We decided to partner this year with The Playhouse At White Lake and share Wilma Witch’s The Witch’s Ball adventure with even more of West Michigan."

You’ll Absolutely Love This Show

They incorporate indie-pop melodies, global-infused beats, rock guitar riffs, and folk sensibilities into a high-energy live show which leaves every listener in a higher place than when it began.

The RagbirdsSince 2005, they have gathered and maintained a passionate, grassroots fanbase by reinventing themselves with an ever-evolving sound, while sharing the stage with Brandi Carlile, Rusted Root, Greensky Bluegrass, Birds of Chicago, Lindsay Lou and Billy Strings, just to name a few.

The band has performed in 47 states, winning over crowds at festivals such as: Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Green Room Festival (Yokohama Japan), Ann Arbor Folk Festival, Great Blue Heron, and many more.

The Ragbirds’ albums have received local and national praise, hailed “Highly Impressive!” by USA Today and touted as “astounding international eclecticism” by Reveal Arts. The 2009 international release of Finally Almost Ready saw the band invade Japan with the single “Book of Matches” reaching #1 on the charts in Osaka. 2016’s The Threshold & The Hearth debuted at #20 on Billboard Folk Chart and #29 on Top New Artists Chart.
