Welcome to Detroit Proud! This week we are bringing you a full-spectrum playlist full of talented artists residing right under our noses here in Detroit.
This week’s playlist is dedicated to those Detroit women who know what it means to have that Motor City soul. They all pack a major punch across different genres and we know you’ll enjoy it.
In honor of this beautiful weather, we’re going to serve up some of our road trip favorites! Indie rock, folk, alternative, hip-hop, electric—you can’t deny the variety!
Imagine Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin’,” Lil Jon’s “Get Low,” and “Root Down” by the Beastie Boys…played in the style of folk music. Awesome, right? Putting a folk spin on classic rap and hip-hop songs is exactly what local bands will be doing this Sunday at The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor at the 4th annual FOLK THE POLICE showcase.
Watch the Saline Fiddlers rehearse “Camptown Races” and hear from the students about why they participate in this unique program.
