Dana and Susan Robinson
Showtime:  4pm
D
ana and Susan Robinson are two guitar-playing, banjo-frailing, fiddle-sawing, and harmony-singing interpreters of the American experience. Their unique blend of contemporary songwriting and traditional Appalachian music bring to their performances a deep understanding of Americas musical heritage.

The genius of a Dana and Susan Robinson performance lies in their ability to capture the imagination of their audience, evoking a transformative experience that touches on the deepest humanity. They can make the audience howl with laughter or hush with poignant reflection as they take them on a journey across America and convey the mystery and wonder of the places they visit.

"Many songwriters have been heralded as modern day Woody Guthries or keepers of the American rural spirit, but that mantle might be better entrusted to musicians like Dana Robinson who embody both the heart and the soul of folk music."

Max & Ruth Bloomquist
Showtime:  4pm

They met in 1975, played their first show together in a band named Amaryllis at Grand Rapids' Festival of the Arts in 1976, and they've never looked back.

Ruth and Max Bloomquist, who live in Norton Shores, south of Muskegon, have since become veritable folk music legends in Michigan, captivating audiences with their songs, their harmonies and their folk-infused charm.

Ruth has earned her share of singing and songwriting awards over the years, often hailed by critics and publications across the country for her terrific alto vocals – a voice rightly compared to the likes of Anne Murray and Kathy Mattea.

The couple's most recent album, “Turn Back a Page,” soared to No. 5 on the Folk Radio Airplay Chart in 2010, thanks to “tender, beautifully performed acoustic music with a traditional flair,"

 

'On the Porch' Concert Series is a monthly showcase featuring performers singing their original work in a concert in a club atmosphere.   It is a commitment to allow artists to perform their music in a concert setting and the series focuses on performers who write/sing/perform their own material.In keeping with that focus, all performers need to be aware that:

"Sleder's Family does not purchase music licensing from BMI/ASCAP//SESAC, musicians can only play their own music (YOU wrote it and YOU control the copyright) or their own renditions (YOU arranged it and YOU control the copyright) of public domain material. Make sure all musicians playing with you know this."


Sleder's Tavern takes great pride in our "On The Porch" Concert Series! Below are some of the great musicians that have played at the tavern. Many, many thanks to CONNEMARA CONCERTS for bringing the music to us... and to our patrons!
