    Experience Interlochen’s gifted faculty, students, and guests in Traverse City as the Interlochen in Town Series comes to The Alluvion. In this performance, StoneFolk’s Kevin LaRose and Aaron Dye join Interlochen Instructor of Singer-songwriter Blake Elliott for an evening of original music.


    A lifelong songwriter and artist, Elliott has performed and collaborated with musicians across Michigan and the United States, sharing the stage with artists including Grammy Award winner Billy Strings, Sixto “Sugarman” Rodriquez, Interlochen alumni The Accidentals, jazz-blues outfit Davina and the Vagabond, and others. Prior to Interlochen, Elliott was a full-time songwriter and musician, appearing both as a solo artist and with various band members at venues and festivals in Michigan and beyond. Elliott is a supporter of the arts in northern Michigan and has served as a board member for both The Friends of Fine Arts Committee for Suttons Bay Schools and The Art Place.


    Singer-songwriter Aaron Dye and bassist/sousaphonist Kevin LaRose are two-thirds of StoneFolk, an Americana swamp-rock trio based in northern Michigan. StoneFolk’s signature sound—a unique combination of swooning vocals, outrageous dancing sousaphone marches, and solid, tight-knit beats—draws inspiration from diverse genres such as funk, indie rock, jazz, and R&B. The band has performed at venues and festivals across the region including the National Cherry Festival, Workshop Brewing Co., Blissfest, and the Earthwork Harvest Gathering. Their debut album will be released in 2023.
