ABOUT THE MUSIC
This combination of some of Kalamazoo’s most popular musicians is sure to be a very Special Collection featuring a wide range of instrumental and vocal styles.
Darcy Wilkin is a singer-songwriter from Kalamazoo, Michigan. She is a founding member of Michigan Americana favorites, The Corn Fed Girls. She is now hard at work on her debut solo record. Along with her dad, Mark Sahlgren, Darcy co-hosts “Grassroots”, an Americana music radio program on WMUK.
Jay Gavan is a long-time Kalamazoo musician and songwriter who currently performs with Guitar UP!, the Birdseed Salesmen, and The Corn Fed Girls. These diverse combos, coupled with two albums of solo material and years of work with the Red Sea Pedestrians, foreshadow the eclectic musical interests present in his solo performances.
Susie Parr- Has come to Kalamazoo to play music after two years on the road with the American Shakespeare Center. Although a professional actor by trade, music has always been the backbone of her life. She also has a passion for acro yoga, slacklining, birth work, and travel.
John Campos studied violin as a child, playing in the Kalamazoo Junior Symphony and taking lessons with Barry Ross. He graduated from the Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Production and Engineering, and has run the recording studio and taught classes in recording at the WMU School of Music since 1987. John has played mandolin, guitar and violin in various bands over the years, and currently plays with Corn Fed Girls and in a duo with Susie Parr.

Directions & Parking
From downtown Kalamazoo, follow Michigan Avenue east. Just after the King Highway turnoff get in the right lane and stay right as you pass under the viaduct (you are still on E. Michigan Ave). Straight through light at E. Main, continuing on E. Michigan — we’re in the next block on the left just past the community garden — look for yellow house with grey fence. Street parking available on the south (east-bound) side of E. Michigan Avenue. Use the arbor entrance from E. Michigan to house. If you require an accessible entrance, please turn left on Foresman and left into the first driveway and use our back door.
