Acoustic Routes Concerts begins its fourth year bringing live music to downtown Saline with three concerts in May and June, including a showcase for some of Saline’s most talented aspiring singer-songwriters.
May 14, 8 p.m. Cold Tone Harvest with special guest Danny Kline: Live in concert is the best way to appreciate Cold Tone Harvest’s unique blend of alt country and Americana. Haunting vocals and a tasteful weave of guitar, bass, drums and the occasional banjo make for an intimate and highly intoxicating sound. Opening is singer-songwriter Danny Kline. With scenes of desert highway landscapes, bloody cornstalks, and coal-faced switchmen, Kline’s approach is to let the moment reinvent the song.
June 18, 8 p.m. Sing Out! Saline: Join some of the area’s most talented young singers for a genre-busting evening of music. The first set will feature up and coming singer-songwriters with Saline roots, including Jake Enos, Cora Hassberger and Noelle Caprarese, as well as Sienna Morgan of Ann Arbor. Set two will be an acapella extravaganza, featuring The Ten Tones and Hornet Harmonies from Saline High School.
June 25, 8 p.m. Shari Kane and Dave Steele: Shari and Dave throw a four handed guitar party of original and time-honored blues, gospel, swing and ragtime. Steeped in Dave’s smoky vocals, percussive rhythm and innovative lead lines, Shari’s crisp picking style, rootsy leads, and stinging slide work, their music has been described as “street swing and stomp blues,” like the sounds once heard in Mississippi juke joints and on the streets of Harlem.
