Jill Jack – The Homestead – Music on the Mountain – August 3, 2017


Jill Jack’s magical connection to her audience is the result of her generous artistry. By combining her gifts as a conceptual visionary with a warm gathering of musical influences, Jill touches that secret heart of ours with her melodies and lyrics. In her hometown of Detroit, Jill needs no further explanation. She’s been lauded in equal measure to her talents: Since 1997 she’s won over 37 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. It’s simply called connecting, and it’s the bounty of a true songwriter open to all of life: her own defeats, victories, hopes dashed, dreams fulfilled, her muse, her loneliness, her misplaced love and her romantic successes.

You get all of Jill Jack in a performance — her blend of folk and rock traditions, her open humor, her fine band. Jill harbors little of her process from her audience — each performance is about opening a window and shining a light into her songwriting, leading inevitably to the intense relationship with her fans. Her career is founded on folk’s best idea — that there’s a shared knowing between artist and audience, a conversation that flows both ways during a show. Plus she’s a strong woman who’s won over the toughest town in a man’s world — she’s a bandleader, the principal songwriter in a large group bearing her own name, an employer and automatic arbiter of musician’s issues.

We have been guests for the past 20 years. Our daughter was married there in May. It was magical! We look forward to many more years of memories with you!!

We checked out yesterday! It was a wonderful vacation, our accommodations at Fiddler's Pond were beautiful, the grounds were amazing and staff was excellent! We'll be back!

Enjoying the Homestead at this moment.

Can't wait!😎

At long last, the first section of new boardwalk is down. The bollards/illumination posts await their assignment. We're so excited for this beautiful addition to the beachfront experience. ... See MoreSee Less

Looks nice and I like that you opened up the beach from the pool. Hopefully the beach will be handicap accessible when the boardwalk is done? I had a problem getting on the beach yesterday...I couldn't step over all the boulders in the way and there was nothing to hang onto. Might want to clear a path. And while I am on the subject- you might want to post some signs and the menu for Cafe Manitou. I know it's there but you can't see it from the pool. Glad the cafe window is open but hope it won't just be ice cream. Can we have some salads and sandwiches for hungry swimmers?

WAY overdue....

C Don Paulsell, check it out!
