Flat River Songwriter Showcase – September 28 at 7:00pm
LowellArts is pleased to present an evening of authentic songs, stories, and camaraderie from some of the Michigan’s finest songwriters. Hosted by Josh Rose, the event features four incredible songwriting artists in the intimate space of the LowellArts gallery. Gracing the stage will be Kyle Rasche, Kaitlin Rose, Ed Dupas, and Audra Kubat. With over ten full length studio albums and forty years of shows between them, these artists will be sharing their catalog in an in-the-round format, in which each person takes a turn, sharing wisdom, vignettes, and perhaps even a little humor in between. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
Troll for Trout – October 5 at 7:00pm

Checkers Morton – October 19 at 7:00pm
When Checkers Morton formed in 1972, they played only “Free Jazz” inspired by the music of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Miles Davis and the like. There were no tunes, key, time signatures, or any other agreements… “just play and let the music take you where it wants to go” was the rule. It still is. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
An Dro – October 26 at 7:00pm
An Dro takes you on an adventure that is both personal and universal. You’ll hear traditional Irish melodies, medieval French songs, Breton dance tunes, Scandinavian refrains, Appalachian influences, Arabic rhythms, and African grooves–all performed with joy and freshness.
