Selkie at the Dark Sky Park

Friday, August 9Fri, Aug 9 at 8:30 PM

Dr. T.K. Lawless Park, Vandalia, MI

Come for the music, stay for the stars! The Connecting Chords Music Festival will be bringing live music to the Dr. T.K. Lawless County Park before an evening of stargazing on Friday, August 9.

Returning for 2024 will be Selkie, a trio of dynamic Celtic musicians – Jim Spalink, Michele Venegas, and Cara Lieurance – who play traditional and original music with a trademark intensity and drive. The sounds of flute, fiddle, bouzouki, banjo, guitar, accordion, and harp are woven into Selkie’s music, along with the vocal harmonies they use for their songs.

Park admission is $5/car (please bring cash). Donations to the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music will be accepted.

Located in Vandalia, MI (about 50 minutes south of Kalamazoo), Lawless Park is one of only three sites in Michigan to be officially designated an International Dark Sky Park. The music program will start at 8:30 PM, and the park will remain open until 2:00 am for stargazing – we’ll be very close to the peak of the annual Perseid meteor shower!
