vegfest entertaInment

Featured at this year’s VegFest are a stunning array of Southeast Michigan area singer/songwriters. Many are local recording artists and performers who will be performing primarily original, acoustic-based music. Featured artists are Milan Seth, Phil McMillion, Stuart Benbow, Melissa Welsh and Willow Martin, Kandy Fredrick, Bobby Pennock, Mary and Jerry Brooks, Wolf Tytschkowski, and Scott Fishkind.

The Southeast Michigan music scene has long been a creative haven that has welcomed a wide variety of musical artists. The supportive and collaborative atmosphere is reminiscent of the Laurel Canyon era of the mid 1960s which gave rise to the singer-songwriter phenomenon.

These artists carry on that tradition of musical troubadaurs, expressing their personal life experiences and vision into their music.
