Join us for this annual celebration before our town gets over taken by the Art Fair. This is in the same location as Top of the Park. There are local art displays, kids activities, food/beverages and music to enjoy.
ROLLIE TUSSING & THE MIDWEST TERRITORY BAND
5:30 - 6:30PM
Adding to the all-townie line-up is Ann Arbor’s, Rollie Tussing & the Midwest Territory Band. Rollie is a guitar virtuoso in his own right, having won the National Slide Guitar Competition in 2001. Add to that the talents of Serge Vander Voo and Jim Carey and you have a sound that the band has dubbed “raggedy folk.”
7:00 - 9:00PM
This is a very special Townie Street Party, as we join forces with home-town boy, Bill Kirchen, to tip our hats to the beloved townie institution, The Ark, in celebration of their 50th anniversary. Bill virtually began his career at The Ark in the early 1960’s and credits The Ark founder, Dave Siglin, as the inspiration behind his transition from trombone to guitar. Today, Bill is recognized as a “titan of the telecaster” and has long been known for his trademark licks behind the Commander Cody classic, Hot Rod Lincoln. Bill will also be part of The Ark’s 50 Year Fling: Guitar Greats, on July, 25th.
