Fennville ‘Tuesdays in the Park’ Concert Series
Posted: May 29, 2013

The 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.

Named 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.

The concerts will be held at Memorial/Paradise Park on north Maple ST in downtown Fennville. Music begins at 7PM. In case of inclement weather the concerts will take place in the lower level of the Fennville District Library. Free to the public the concerts are sponsored by the following businesses:
