The Traverse City Wine & Art Festival returns to the Village at Grand Traverse Commons on Saturday, June 30, 2012 from 3-10 PM. Order your tickets today!

The festival is a landmark celebration of the wine, food and culture of Michigan’s wine coast, featuring wines from the wineries of the Leelanau Peninsula, Old Mission Peninsula, Traverse City & Benzie along with a selection of Traverse City and Leelanau restaurants serving food & desserts. The 2012 festival is our fourth annual and will once again showcase innovative music & performance and original artwork from dozens of regional artists.

The Traverse City Wine & Art Festival is very excited to announce the headliner for the 2012 festival, national recording artist Rusted Root.

Rusted Root features founder and band leader Michael Glabicki (lead vocals, guitar), Liz Berlin (vocals, percussion) and Patrick Norman (vocals, bass, percussion). Glabicki says “We are a band made up of individual musicians who come together collectively to create music, call it what you want but we are simply creating music that has a message.”

Rusted Root has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide, and Traverse City’s own Rick Coates observes that the message has been resonating with fans for nearly 20 years. Get all the info about Rusted Root (including their new work) at Below is Send Me On My Way, interestingly enough chosen by NASA engineers as the “wake-up” music for the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity Sol 21.
