It is rare when a collection of songs creates an entire world. Yet that’s exactly what happens with Steppin’ In It’s Simple Tunes for Troubled Times.
Sonically painting with a pleasant array of old time country swing and blues, this Lansing, MI quartet updates a resurging American musical genre. It’s a world Woody Guthrie knew about and sang about.
Though mostly originals, there’s also a rollicking version of Randy Newman’s, Mr. President (Have Pity on the Working Man).
Reserved Seating: $15.
Cheboygan is near the tip-of-the-mitt, about 18 miles southeast of Mackinaw City on US-23.
