GREENLAND, Mich. -- Algomah Acres Honey House will host two events this weekend -- their last concert of the 2013 season on Friday, Oct. 4, and their Third Annual Harvest Market on Saturday, Oct. 5.

Music by "The Potter's Field" Oct. 4

"The Potter's Field" will present a concert at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, at Algomah Acres Honey House in Greenland. Admission is $10 for adults at the door; kids under 12 are free.

The Potter's Field defies easy description. It has been described as "harmoniously haunting, deceptively simple, painting portraits of real life on the canvas of the listeners' hearts and minds with sepia undertones of edgy eeriness, poignant lyrics and bright splashes of toe-tapping energy."

Rochelle Clark and John Natiw are The Potter's Field, a Midwest-based Folk/Americana/Roots duo. Known for poetic, gritty lyrics, driving instrumental style (including acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, harmonica, typical and non-typical percussion elements and the occasional kazoo), close and powerful vocal harmonies and easy stage presence, The Potter's Field surprises with new songs and ideas that sound familiar yet nostalgic.

The Potter's Field's original compositions cover a variety of topics and styles while holding fast to their Midwest roots. The duo displays a wide variety of tastes and influences, including such great artists as Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson, Johnny and June, Over the Rhine and more. Audiences leave shows entertained and uplifted, thoughtful and hopeful.*
