The Accidentals

Traverse City’s own female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio returns to NPAC for a rousing Saturday night performance. Says NPR, “they display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness, and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression,” adding, “they might be the most compelling songwriters of our time.”

For tickets call the NPAC box office at (231) 386-5001
