MARCH 6, Friday, Livonia MI
A special night at Trinity House Theater, 8pm.  A double-bill show with Red Tail Ring, an exciting new-time old-time duo I have done shows with before. Plenty of great songs, both trad and original. Lots of guitar picking, banjo picking and fiddling. Trinity house is a small gem of a theater in an historic building tucked in the shadow of a modern cloverleaf exchange in Livonia, just outside of Detroit proper.  Literally a step back to the 19th century. And I mean literally. $20, $17 for subscribers.   http://www.trinityhousetheatre.org/
