“Handmade Music Festival was created by and for the love of music and community. We are creating an atmosphere where the music flows freely, as does love, friendship and gratitude. Music is a universal language bringing generations together and that is our mission. A portion of the proceeds of this festival will be donated to Showboat Park/Amphitheater and to The Healing Nest located in Corunna, Michigan. We are creating the perfect atmosphere while swaying to a handpicked playlist of bluegrass, psychedelic folk, Americana, and soul.”
Handmade Music Festival will open the gates for its inaugural year Friday, October 12 at 6:00 PM, with programming running until 11:00 PM on Saturday, October 13. Over 20 handmade original Michigan bands will be featured including The Gasoline Gypsies, Melophobix, Bluegrass Jones (Desmond Jones rare acoustic bluegrass), Chirp, Tell Yo Momma, and Act Casual.
