Diversity and Family Fun at 2013 Michigan Mosaic Music Festival
LANSING - The Michigan Mosaic Music Festival will bring a fun and diverse lineup of musical acts and family activities to Lansing’s Adado Riverfront Park over Labor Day weekend, Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1.
“The ancient art form known as mosaic fits right in with the rich cultural heritage we have right here in mid-Michigan, and Mosaic’s goal of building bridges across diverse communities,” said Terry Terry, President of the Michigan Institute for Contemporary Art (MICA). “We have a great lineup of country, Americana, roots, and multi-cultural performances set for this year’s Mosaic, and we’re excited to welcome crowds from around Michigan to our weekend celebration of labor and the different groups of people who have built Lansing.”
Performers from around Michigan and the Midwest will share live performances of country and Americana folk as well as multi-cultural performances from around the world.
Live performances will range from the hard-driving soulful Americana rock-and-roll of Ryan Dillaha & the Miracle Men to the mainstream country-western harmonies of the Kari Lynch Band, who have shared the stage with numerous high-powered national acts.
The festival will also feature many multi-cultural performances, including the Indian music tinged with jazz and folk of Sumkali, and the seasoned, soulful blend of jazz, blues and folk of West Michigan native Karisa Wilson.
