It’s a precedent-setting series in a historic building spotlighting local and regional artists who rarely get the opportunity to perform in such a setting.

The Local Spins Live contemporary folk series debuting Thursday evening in St. Cecilia Music Center’s pristine Royce Auditorium in Grand Rapids will test the venue’s traditional musical boundaries, expose new audiences to the building and give some of Michigan’s most compelling folk-infused artists a singular stage experience.

KarisaWilsonPhotoByJohnSinkevics In partnership with the Spins On Music website and Mackinaw Harvest Music studios, the 118-year-old St. Cecilia Music Center expands its musical horizons “by presenting local musicians who are known and loved in the community” to many fans who will “experience our beautiful building” for the first time in “unplugged-style” performances, says executive director Cathy Holbrook.
