If you play fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer (either kind), or anything else you can play the old tunes on - or if you'd simply enjoy being in a room humming with live music played by real human beings - come over and join us.

"Presented by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing, in partnership with our local commercial and business associations, Arts Night Out is a monthly event series that invites you to visit four different Lansing neighborhoods to experience urban space and creativity in unexpected ways. Consider your local yoga studio filled with pottery wheels and clay throwers. Think what would happen if the corner hardware store turned scrap art gallery and your local pub was re-vamped into an intimate spoken word speakeasy. Imagine parklet donut bars outside your accountant's office and your favorite art gallery partnering with their neighboring coffeehouse to present the swirling deliciouness of foam latte artwork.

We're building collaborative and inherently creative mash-ups and whatever way you can participate, we want you to be a part of it."
