HANCOCK -- Three groups -- Chris Bathgate, The Chanteymen and This is Deer Country -- will perform live music beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 21, at the Orpheum Theater, located behind Studio Pizza in Hancock (formerly the Pic theater).
Chris Bathgate is considered one of the best performers in the Michigan music scene right now -- a must-see act.
According to NPR, "It's clear that Chris Bathgate knows his way around pretty, minor-key indie-folk...If Bathgate has mastered one thing in his young and enormously promising career, it's the art of distilling alienation into bruised-sounding beauty."
The Chanteymen are known as Marquette's premiere nautical acoustic rock outfit.
The Houghton duo This is Deer Country just released the album What Wandering Heart.
Proceeds from these shows go toward supporting the touring musicians and theater maintenance.
