Tuning In: Your guide to the peninsula’s summer music scene

From Rock and Washington Islands all the way down to Brussels and Algoma, the Door Peninsula will once again be showered with music around campfires, in barns, on the water, at bars and auditoriums – just about anywhere you look.

It’s being played on instruments of all kinds – from inherited acoustic guitars to jugs, from banjos to hand drums, from brass, wind, and string instruments to keyboards and stunning vocals.

Whether it’s an accordion during White Gull’s fish boil, an amateur artist creating a masterpiece to rock n’ roll during Hands On Art Studio’s adult night, an afternoon or sunset concert in the park, a performance in Birch Creek’s Dutton Barn or a late night boogie session at a bar, the musicians of the door are sure to move you and get you moving.

These pages of the Pulse will guide you through a summer of music along the peninsula and are dedicated to the musicians and venues that not only promote music but strive to keep the Door Peninsula rich with talent.

Keep an eye on the Pulse’s weekly event calendar for additions to the live music and performance slate, but this special insert and poster will give you a glimpse of the music coming our way through Labor Day. Keep it in your glove compartment, on your wall, or by the time-clock to ensure you don’t miss a beat in 2011.
