ROTHBURY — A free concert featuring musicians Ruth and Max Bloomquist will be held at Double JJ Resort on Friday, Aug. 12 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. The concert will be held outside the Sundance Steakhouse, 5900 Water Road.

The Bloomquists have been described by John Sinkevics of the Grand Rapids Press, as “Veritable folk music legends in Michigan…” adding how they have “Captivat(ed) audiences with their songs, their harmonies and their folk-infused charm”.

An earlier release, ‘Turn Back a Page’, reached No. 5 on the Folk DJ Airplay Chart with 4 songs in the top 100.  The Bloomquists released a live CD in 2012 and a Christmas EP in 2015. A new release is in the works for 2016.

This concert is free and open to the public. Food and beverage service will be available  before and during the performance at the Sundance Steakhouse. Dinner reservations are recommended at (231)894-3900.
