WindSong at Out to Lunch Thursday

IRON MOUNTAIN – WindSong members Crystal Hogan, Karen McCorkle, and Pam Trask will be the featured entertainment for the Out to Lunch program Thursday, July 24, n downtown Iron Mountain.

The women delight audiences on a variety of musical instruments including mandolin, lap dulcimer, guitar, banjo, recorders, and upright bass. In addition to instrumentals, they sing three-part harmonies in many of their arrangements. Their repertoire includes Celtic, traditional folk, gospel, jazz, and contemporary music.

WindSong has performed over the past 25 years throughout Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula for weddings, music festivals, and concerts. These women, brought together through their love of music, all have classical training, which gives them a solid musical foundation and adds polish to their sound. Always an Out to Lunch favorite, WindSong’s varied musical program is reflective, fun, and lively, and it appeals to young and old.

First National Bank & Trust is this week’s sponsor. Without the generosity and enthusiasm of Downtown businesses and civic organizations, the free concert series could not have existed for 12 years. Out to Lunch is hosted by the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and Dickinson County Council for the Arts.

The summer concerts run through Aug. 14, this year and take place on the Freedom Stage at the Magee Johnson Downtown Park from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the great music and excellent food choices from five area vendors, organizers said.

The featured performers next week will be Red Tail Ring with Laurel Premo and Michael Beauchamp sponsored by Northern Michigan Bank.
