The Alluvion will host Earthwork Music bands together for a special collaborative tour for the first time in five years, on Earth Day in Traverse City. Earthwork Music is a collective steward of community, collaboration, and creativity. In a rare and exciting display of these tenets, Earthwork Music is hitting the road in April for the Earthwork Music Spring Tour 2023! The star-studded lineup will feature Dede Alder, Seth Bernard, Ralston Bowles, Sari Brown, Sarah Cohen (The Antivillains), Samantha Cooper, Chris Good, Jordan Hamilton, Amber Hasan, Josh Holcomb, Audra Kubat, Elisabeth Pixley-Fink, Dan Rickabus (The Crane Wives), Vince Russo (The Appleseed Collective), Mike Savina (The Go Rounds), Jo Serrapere (Stella!), Nicholas James Thomasma and Ben Traverse. Over the course of 2 sets the members of the collective will weave in and out supporting and backing each other up to create a tapestry of song that will be completely unique to this tour and can never be recreated again! Earthwork Music has been a pillar of the Michigan music scene since it was founded back in 2001 by Seth Bernard on his family farm in Lake City, MI which is now the site of the annual Earthwork Harvest Gathering. In 2019, Earthwork Music turned inward to do a deep process of inquiry and metamorphosis that lasted several years. This mediated process has led to a newly revised mission, vision, values, and organizational structure. We believe in the intrinsic power of music to raise both community and self-awareness. We encourage cooperation and collaboration. We use music as a tool to serve, heal, inspire and empower. We believe that coming together as a community is more important now than ever. The most ambitious collective tour to date, this marks the re-emergence of Earthwork Music.
