Performance Art from the North Woods

Michael has been writing and performing as a singer/songwriter weekly for twenty years, earning the honor of Marquette Arts and Culture Center’s Outstanding Performing Artist. Erica creates dances based in her classical ballet background which bring Michael’s songs to life, songs which connect the natural environment of the North Woods region with universal themes of love and friendship, hard times and good times.

The duo offers community dance workshops and concerts in venues in libraries, schools, festivals, churches and other community gathering spaces.
