Friday, May 4, 7:30pm, Howmet Playhouse

The Crane Wives are an indie-folk outfit from Grand Rapids that defies musical stereotypes. Formed in late August of 2010, they just finished recording their debut album entitled Safe Ship, Harbored. Using three-part vocal harmonies, eclectic instrumentation, and a knack for dynamics, they create organic music that is both accessible and innovative. Each live show features contagious energy as well as original music that ranges from whisper quiet ballads to danceable grooves. You can watch videos at the Crane Wives’ website.
