eleventh annual Fennville “Tuesdays in the Park” free community concert series
begins on June 11 with the popular northern Michigan band Sister Wilene. Sister Wilene will take you back to
the days when country music was a pocketful of heartfelt ballads and great
swing songs you could dance to. From the traditions of Patsy Cline to Bob
Wills, from the honky-tonks to the dance halls to the front porches, this band
will take you down memory lane or perhaps introduce you to some of the greatest
American music ever played. Added to the
vintage country material are original songs penned by band member Roger Brown.
for the only female member of Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys - accordion player
Wilene Forrester - Sister Wilene gives a nod to the
country/bluegrass/Americana tradition with a repertoire of country songs that
have survived the decades, most written by someone named Hank… or Roger.
