At 5:30 PM on August 12, 2017, the third annual Sip *Savor *Stroll will begin at the home of Kevin Daus and Duane Dupee (421 Division) where appetizers and complimenting West Coast wines will be served. From there, guests will walk to the home of Brenda and Wayne Marshall (648 N. Madison) and will receive an “East Coast-style” dinner paired with wines from that region, and the event will conclude at the residence of Jennifer and Gene Snook (333 N. Madison) with scrumptious desserts and wines.
All tickets must be purchased in advance. Tickets are $60 per person and can be purchased at The Franke Center for the Arts, or by calling the Franke at 269.781.0001, or online at frankecenterforthearts.org. Be sure to purchase your tickets now, as tickets sell out very quickly.
The committee members have been meeting since March, and they are excited about what is being offered this year. “After featuring foreign countries for the first two years, this year we will feature food and wine from those regions of the USA,” said chairperson Cathy Galloway. The event will feature wines from these locations but soft drinks and a USA beer will also be offered.
The event will be held rain or shine and a raffle of 3 different baskets will take place at the conclusion of the evening.

The Franke Center for the Arts is excited to bring world renowned Ragtime pianist Bob Milne to Marshall for a special Home Tour concert on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Generally regarded as the finest Ragtime player alive today, Milne will present a special show featuring music that would have been played on parlor pianos from the era of the Home Tour homes. The show starts at 8:00 PM, and reserved seat tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door.
Milne’s live performances contain a treasure trove of this uniquely American style of music which developed during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Much more than just a piano concert, Bob’s encyclopedic knowledge of the development of American music takes the audience on a journey through the roots of southern Blues, Ragtime, and Jazz as he skillfully plays examples of each and traces the development through the years. He is one of a small list of musicians that continue to entertain and educate audiences about Ragtime music and where it came from. Bob Milne brings endless enthusiasm, enchanting ease of playing, and a warm personality to the stage as he tells stories of his experiences with warmth and humor.
A resident of Lapeer, Michigan, Milne’s busy concert schedule of upwards of 200 shows per year takes him across the U.S. and to numerous foreign countries. In 2004 he was invited to the Library of Congress to record his music for posterity. The tapes include several interviews with Bob talking about the roots and historical development of Ragtime and Blues, both uniquely American forms of music. Milne was declared to be “a National Treasure” by the Library of Congress for his unending efforts to preserve and educate audiences about the style and substance of his music.
“One of my favourite discoveries of recent years, it’s always a joy to watch the faces of audience members who haven’t seen Lisa Mills before. What a voice…If you like your Americana with some southern soul and blues, and a big, big voice, then this is the singer for you.”
–- Andrew Heaps, Maverick Magazine (UK)
Equally at home playing authentic Mississippi Blues, Gospel, or 1950’s Country covers, Singer/songwriter Lisa Mills promises to take the Franke Center’s audience on a tour of uniquely American music styles from the deep South. We are thrilled to have her performing in the Downstage Club for the first show in our newly named “Music On Tap” Series. This concert series highlights the intimacy and fine acoustics of the Downstage Club, and is a partnership with Weatherwax Hall in Jackson, Michigan.
Widely touring in Europe for the last several years, Lisa Mills is surprisingly off the radar screen of the American music scene. This is a show that should not be missed as she makes a rare tour through the upper Midwest. Her live shows have been critically acclaimed by numerous writers, and her full voice has been frequently described as “A female Otis Redding”, and “In the same league as Aretha Franklin”.
“Lisa Mills takes her audiences on a musical, and often humorous, emotional journey with charm and panache that is melodic, raw, unfettered and, most important, searingly honest: expect blues, country, gospel and soul influences.”
“The Mississippi-born; Mobile, Alabama-based Lisa Mills beautifully meshes country, gospel, blues, soul and more together…without doubt one of the finest female singers and performers around!”.(Blues in the Northwest, Grahame Rhodes, Jan 03, 2015).
Her defiance of description is what makes Lisa Mills a singular talent. She takes the best of blues, country, gospel and soul influences, whether self-penned or carefully chosen covers that speak to her in some way, and utterly transforms them. By taking all those ingredients and adding the occasional dollop of jazz inflection, Mills serves up her own savoury-sweet mix that goes beyond the expected. Her live performances, flying solo accompanied only by her faithful archtop guitar, quickly captivate the audience as she takes them on a musical journey influenced by personal aspects of her life, and her musical background. Franke Center Events Manager Dave Deppe said of Lisa “This is going to be an evening of music not to be missed – even if you have never heard of Lisa Mills, by the end of the evening you will feel that you know her. Her music is rich with her personal life experiences, and this promises to be an outstanding performance”.
