Two years in the making, Title Track is working with William Copeland (aka Will See) and a network of partners (Earthwork Music, D.Cipher) to bring a FREE, all ages cultural event to Detroit, inspired by the Earthwork Harvest Gathering. This one day happening will take place on Wednesday, July 10 at the Dequindre Cut Greenway, and will celebrate cultural resilience and our local social ecologies. The musical lineup will proudly feature notable acts in folk, hip-hop, funk, neo-Soul, and rock n’ roll.
Community leaders will address the crowd representing a variety of local cultural and organizing efforts. Youth programming will be central to the event including a kids concert and interactive workshops throughout the afternoon and evening on topics including songwriting, poetry writing, and permaculture. Donations will be accepted at the first Earthwork Detroit Music Festival benefiting the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network which is preparing to open a food co-op in the heart of our city. This is where resistance, community, and culture meet and it will be a funky good time.
Participating artists include: The Aadizookaan, Nique Love Rhodes & The NLR Experience, BRYCE DETROIT, Audra Kubat, Spirits Rising, Will See Music, and Seth Bernard. Piper Carter of the Piper Carter podcast (Detroit is Different) will be providing media support.
Workshop leadership by:
