Storm: A Maritime
Visual Concert Experience
with Ric Mixter& Dan
Washington Avenue, Bay City
General Admission: $10.00/person
It's fair to say that
most of the stories of shipwrecks on the Great Lakes have been lost to the ages. Thousands of ships--from sailing schooners
to steel freighters--have vanished from these inland seas. The causes of these accidents varies, from collisions to fire and
strandings. But November gales are the most notorious, appearing with little notice during the month when shipping companies
are scrambling to get their final loads acrss the lakes before the freeze-up.
Storm remembers these terrifying gales and
the survivals of sailors who were caught in the tempests. Combining actual eyewitness interviews with spellbinding underwater
video, the presentation fuses contemporary music to create a history lesson that cannot be forgotten.
Ric Mixter hosts
Storm, transporting the audience back to the age of sail and steam. Dan Hall provides the melody, with lyrics derived
from historical accounts of survivors. Dan's songs are as powerful as the massive modern freighters he heralds in "Thousand
Foot Keel," and his amazing voice provides requiem to those lost to the lakes.
