SAGINAW, MI — Blues singer extraordinaire Sharrie Williams will kick off a monthly concert series at the Saginaw Art Museum.
The second annual Museum Tunes program, hosted in the organization’s garden at 1126 N. Michigan, launches with the Saginaw-born Williams’ performance at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 14. Her son, Charles Allen, will join the performance. Allen was a contestant in the popular singing competition TV show, “American Idol,” in 2013.
The Stapletons perform at 7 p.m. Monday, July 11; and Phabies take the stage at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10.
Admission is free. Registration is not required, but organizers are requesting interested attendees register online.
“We are grateful to have such great talent right here in Saginaw, and artists from outside the region,” Ben Champagne, associate curator at the Saginaw Art Museum, said in a statement. “Each will all bring something unique to listeners, and this will be a chance to introduce guests to some familiar sounds and new music.”
Williams’ accomplishments as a musician include winning Blues Album of the Year award from L’Academie du Jazz for her 2012 release, “Out of the Dark.”
The Stapletons are a husband-and-wife duo who “write baroque folk rich with hints of Appalachian balladry, Delta blues, and echoes of the English folk revival movement,” concert series organizers said.
Phabies features performers from Grand Rapids. The group released five albums featuring alternative rock and pop music.
