The Soo Theatre Project is bringing five major music concerts to Sault Ste. Marie over the course of this spring and summer to raise money for major roof repairs needed on the historic theatre.
To close out the series, the famous Billy Strings band comes to town on August 5th. Out of Traverse City, Strings has been described as “Blessed with the voice of an old soul from the mountains, a gentlemanly air, and the ability to sling hundreds of notes with razor-crisp precision at the speed of a machine gun, Strings’ flat-picking talent seems almost beyond comprehension to veterans of the local bluegrass scene, especially given his youth.” This performance will be a special one, in which Billy Strings plays with his father, well-known musician Terry Barber.
Tickets are only $20! And proceeds benefit the Soo Theatre Project – Help us revive the Soo Theatre! Beer will be available for purchase. No outside food or drinks.
“As a community, we need to come together to preserve our historic downtown. The Raise the Roof initiative is the first step in the restoration of the Theatre. Once completed, we can work toward installing a heating system that will allow the theatre to be used year round, bringing more entertainment and culture to the residents of the Eastern Upper Peninsula and Canada. The Soo Theatre has a huge potential to bring new and exciting events to our downtown, giving our community something it has been missing, and something they can be proud to be a part of.”– Abby Baker, board member.
