The largest island in Lake Michigan, Beaver Island hosts many activities for every nature lover. The year round population is approximately 600 – with a large percentage of Irish descent. Time slows down here, offering a peaceful, relaxed way of life. Tour the Island by bicycle, or bring your car over on the ferry or rent a car to circle the Island in an afternoon.

Is everyone gearing up for the weekend of Sept 9/10th. A great time is being planned and we’re starting to book musicians and wanted to let you all know we’ve just confirmed Aiofe Scott!! For anyone who isn’t familiar, she was born into the legendary Black family. Aiofe is an awarding winning singer and song writer based in Dublin. In 2017 her single "All Along the Wild Atlantic Way" hit # 1 In Ireland and it was named "the number 1 song" at the Irish Folk Music Awards. She’s been winning awards year after year in Ireland and the U.S. We are very happy to have her in our lineup!!!

Take a listen:

Along with Aiofe, we’ve secured our popular Island (and adopted Island) musicians: Danny Gillespie, Jim Boynton, John McCafferty, Ruby John, Brian Roman and Dudley Stevens.

Several more bands, musicians, groups will be announced in the near future. Stay tuned!
