“Handmade Music Festival was created by and for the love of music and community. We are creating an atmosphere where the music flows freely, as does love, friendship and gratitude. Music is a universal language bringing, generations together and that is our mission. A portion of the proceeds of this festival will be donated to Showboat Park/Amphitheater and to The Healing Nest located in Corunna, Michigan. We are creating the perfect atmosphere while swaying to a handpicked playlist of bluegrass, psychedelic folk, Americana, and soul.”
