The Accidentals – Monday at Soo Theatre

The Accidentals return to the Soo Theatre on Monday, July 30 at 7:30pm.  Tickets are $25 general admission and beer and wine will be available from Soo Brewery and 1668 Winery.  The Accidentals have been named among Yahoo Music’s “Top Ten Bands to Watch in 2017.”  When they are not touring, they call Michigan home, having roots in the Traverse City area.  Savannah Buist and Katie Larson were classmates in orchestra in high school and were later joined by Michael Dause from a suburb of Northville, Detroit after meeting at a music festival. 

Collectively, they bring quite an array of talent to the stage.  Buist plays guitar, violin, viola, banjo, mandolin, and upright and electric bass.  Larson plays cello and electric guitar and graduated from Interlochen Arts Academy where she studied songwriting and music technology along with cello.  Dause plays the drums, taught himself guitar, and began writing his own songs in ninth grade.

What could be better on a Monday night in the Soo?  Great music at a historic building with beer, wine, and friends! See you there!

This classic tale of a sickly and unloved girl, Mary Lennox, born in India to wealthy British parents is one you’ll not soon forget.  Mary is cared for by servants and is a spoiled and selfish child.  After losing her parents and the servants to disease, Mary is sent to live with a wealthy uncle.  The maid at the new manor tells Mary the story of her late aunt, who would spend hours caring for rose bushes in the garden.  After an accident in the garden, her uncle locks the garden and throws away the key.
