After a successful first year, the city of Fenton Arts & Culture Commission (FACC) is bringing back the Cabin Fever Concert Series for winter 2020. Cabin Fever will be held at the Fenton Community & Cultural Center (FCCC) on Thursday, Jan. 30, Feb. 27 and March 12, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
“I’m very excited for this year’s concert line-up,” said Eric Szczepanski, Cabin Fever concert chair and FACC board member. “Joining us this year is Kristen & Andrew Music, Mike Espy and the Vehicle City All-Stars, and Finvarra’s Wren.”
Kristen & Andrew Music are a musical duo from Livingston County. They cover a variety of musical styles from country, rock and oldies. They will kick off Cabin Fever on Jan. 30 in the FCCC VanGilder Room. Tickets are $10 each.
Michael Espy & The Vehicle City All-Stars are a rhythm and blues band comprised of artists from around the Flint and Genesee County area. The group will perform Feb. 27 in the FCCC Recreation Room. Tickets are $10 each.
Finvarra’s Wren, an Irish quartet from Detroit, are known for their intense dedication to their instruments and west coast Ireland sound. They’ll close out Cabin Fever with a free — family and kid-friendly concert March 12 in the FCCC’s main hall.
Tickets are on sale at Fenton’s Open Book, FCCC Office (cash only) and online through Eventbrite at FentonArts.eventbrite.com. Tickets include a special coupon offer for Free Focaccia Cheese Bread with purchase of large pizza at the Fenton Winery & Brewery (dine-in only and must present ticket).
“The proceeds will be used to offset concert costs and help us leverage matching grants for programs like Cabin Fever, Meet the Author, and summer arts camps for children,” said Pat Lockwood, mayor pro-tem and FACC chairwoman.
Cabin Fever is sponsored by the city of Fenton Downtown Development Authority, Fenton Community and Cultural Center, Fenton Winery & Brewery, The State Bank, and The ACE of Fenton. The FACC is also supported in part by a matching grant from Share Art Genesee, which is funded by the Genesee County Arts Education and Cultural Millage.
