The Festival Committee is committed to bringing an exciting weekend of events to the Dexter area community!  We've been hard at work since January, and are pleased to introduce you to our 2014 Festival!

Our kickoff concert, to be held on Friday, July 18, at 7pm in the country church at the corner of Mast & North Territorial Roads (6805 Mast Rd., Dexter) will feature Jill Jack and her band.

Ferndale native Jill Jack developed her reputation as a headliner at venues & festivals – Ann Arbor Folk Festival, Blissfest Music Festival, The Living Room in NYC just to mention a few as well as consistent sell-outs at the Ark.  Regional touring has branched to successful tours of England and the American Southeast. Since 1997 she’s won 35 Detroit Music Awards in every conceivable category that applies to a singer-songwriter. Much of this provincial success is due to her charming stage presence and emotive songwriting.  So, mark your calendars and invite your family and friends. 

Some quotes highlighting her talent:
"Life is a battle field and the Michigan girl seems to have won the battle.  Jill Jack & band has shown us all aspects of Americana … (Moon and the Morning After) is top-class" -- Rootstime (Belgium)
"Jill Jack has all the makings of a major talent. She's got the stage presence, the voice, the ability to interpret songs passionately ... there's a lot of soul in what she does" -- Billboard Magazine
"Her voice can soar like opera and smoke like the blues ... one of the strongest voices in Detroit, or in the country for that matter." -- The Detroit Free Press
