Marquette, MI-07/21/2011- The 33rd Annual Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival begins tomorrow evening.  The kick-off for that event is tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Grace United Methodist Church in Marquette.

This is a first time kick-off collaborative event with Hiawatha Co-op and Beaumier UP Heritage Center on the Campus of Northern Michigan University.  It will feature pre-blue grass appalachian style music with the popular Dan Levenson.  He calls this event “An Evening with Dan Levenson and Stories from the Road”.  He will perform with a banjo and fiddle as well as a back up guitar.  The event will be hosted by Phil Watts, a member of the Hiawatha Music Co-op Board.

This week Levenson has been participating in a two day workshop with banjo and fiddle players.  The concert tonight is a wrap-up to these events and a kick-off for this weekend’s festival.

Cost to get into the event is $10 for adults and $5 for people 18 and under.
