Steel Bridge Songfest 2012 – Four Days of Music and Discovery: June 7-10, 2012

From the Steel Bridge Songfest site:

Steel Bridge Songfest

June 7-10, 2012 

We started as a grassroots group called the S.O.B.’s (Save Our Bridge) about 11 years ago, organized to save the historic Michigan Street Bridge from the scheduled wrecking ball. Around 2005, we grew into Citizens for Our Bridge, Inc, a 501(c)3 non-profit. To build public appreciation for the historic structure, we hold a week-long celebration every June at The Holiday Music Motel. Hundreds of songwriters from around the world, including Jackson Browne, Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go’s), James McMurtry, and others have come to this community, written their songs, and dedicated their efforts. A six-disc collection of original songs (Steel Bridge Songs, Vols.1-6) honors the spirit of our bridge and her magnificent presence. Steel Bridge SongsVol.7 will be released during SteelBridge2012.
Since 2007, thanks to assistance from the National Trust For Historic Preservation and funds raised through Steel Bridge Songfest, Sturgeon Bay’s Michigan Street Bridge has been protected as a national treasure, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Her 80th birthday was celebrated last summer with completion of the long awaited rehab, including an all-new coat of paint!
