We can't say enough how excited we are to have legendary performer David Bromberg and the Quintet performing as headliners of the 13th Annual Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, presented by the Friends of the Porkies eh? πŸ˜‰ On Saturday, August 26, 2017 (next Saturday eh?) David Bromberg will be participating in an interactive Q & A Session inside the Chalet at 6 PM and then he and the quintet will kick off their headlining set on the Peace Hill Stage at 8:30 pm. All times are Eastern, eh? We love the man and his music and now love his sense of humor...the map is great! Some good needed laughs on this Friday - one week away from kickoff of the 13th Annual Porcupine Mountains Music Festival!!! Come UP and see us eh? you betcha!!!!The Quintet is heading out to the (metaphorical) hinterlands next week, as they do a quick run around the Midwest. Wednesday will see us at G.A.R. Hall, Thursday at Bell's Eccentric CafΓ©, Saturday at the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival WAY WAY WAY up there, and Sunday at the ever-wonderful The Cedar Cultural Center. The band is coming off of their (honestly) pretty triumphant set at the XPoNential Festival, and ready to see you all! ... See MoreSee Less

WE'RE GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER!! It's almost Festival time and there are still several openings for volunteers on the schedule! If you can donate 8 hours of your time over the weekend, you can enjoy the rest of the festival for free! If you can only spare 4 hours to work, you get in the day that you work for free!

We still need people who can work some of the later on shifts in Parking and Transportation.

Are you a shutterbug? We need a Photographer who can work Friday for about 8 hours.

Want to help the performers enjoy the festival as much as we do? We need some people in Artist Liaison as well.

Email volunteer@porkiesfestival.org or call 906-231-1589 any time to sign up! PLEASE leave a message if you call so that we can get back to you as soon as possible.

Our Busking Barn stage manager Eric Hopper was live on the airwaves of WUPY 101.1 FM this morning (literally) signing the praises of our precious barn and its performers! You will see Eric in the Barn throughout the festival, along with Co-Manager Dale Venema, the mule man! Eric keeps very busy and is a member of the Saucy Rovers, Nonesuch, among others and has also recently performed at the Ontonagon Theater of Performing Arts with his son Del. He wrote this song last night and here it is....

Eric Hopper
I was on the radio this morning to promote the Busking Barn. I performed an original song, "The Busking Barn Blues". Take a listen.
