Musical artists featured for the evening include:

Al Gross, aka the Bearfoot Baladier

Al hails from Rogers Township and can be seen singing his ballads at the Knabe’s Munchy Crunchy every fall.  He has performed at the Northwoods Coffee House and the Nor’easter Music Festival. If there’s a music jam nearby, you’re more than likely to see Al.  He hosts the annual Music Jam at the 40 Mile Point Lighthouse during the Night at the Lighthouse.  He has a passion for the traditional to contemporary folk music mixed in with ballads.  His love of homespun music was the inspiration for the first Homespun at the Rogers City Theater.
