Come on out for our last performance of the season!
One of Northern Michigan's FAVORITE musicians...
Patrick Niemisto hails from Pelkie near Baraga in Michigan's upper peninsula. He is a Northern Michigan University graduate which is in Marquette. Patrick moved to the Leelanau County area in the early 1980's, and has been a part of the music scene ever since. Playing a variety of instruments with an assortment of musicians, Patrick has enjoyed sharing the stage with some very cool people in some very cool places. In addition to being in N3C, he plays with Luunappi, a children's and family music and stories duo with Norm Wheeler, as well as other varied ensembles for special events on a regular basis. Patrick now teaches music at Glen Lake Community Schools. He also spends considerable time as proprietor of the Holy Wah! Recording Studio and Brewery in Maple City. Most of the regional musicians find their way into his studio. Patrick plays Bass, Fiddle, Mandolin, Guitar, Percussion, Piano, you name it - he probably plays it.
"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!
