Photos from Sam Bush Band in Grand Rapids

In 1883, nine women with a shared interest in “promot[ing] the study and appreciation of music in all its branches” came together to form the St. Cecilia Music Center in Grand Rapids, MI. Today, St. Cecilia’s annual Folk, Jazz, and Chamber Music Series is a cornerstone of the city’s music scene, and was deeply missed during the 19 month COVID-induced hiatus.

Thankfully, on Wednesday October 6, with strict COVID testing requirements in place, Executive and Artistic Director Cathy Holbrook was able to joyfully welcome fans to their seats, and bluegrass legend Sam Bush to the stage, and for just a while, everything was right.
