Fresh roots music from Michigan
The Appleseed Collective

Please review The Ark’s current COVID-related information before attending a show.


Mix the Hot Club of France with the sweaty soul of Dixieland, a couple blades of bluegrass, a pinch of ragtime beat, and a western swinging swagger, and you’ve just conjured the washboard-driven sound of The Appleseed Collective. The Appleseed Collective is poised to become the new sound of string music. Riding the wave of the bluegrass revival beyond newgrass and into a strange new genre-bending territory, they explore the full range of dark and light, old and new, composition and improvisation in a deeply theatrical stage show that transports audiences through time. “The blends of swing, bluegrass, Dixieland ditties and alluring gypsy-folk whirls—is something close to a transcendent listen … you’re there, on some dirtroad, being led on by these songs,” says reviewer Jeff Milo of iSpy magazine. The Appleseed Collective has been getting attention from as far away as the UK, and this is a Michigan band that’s going places!

From Michigan’s northern lower peninsula, Charlie Millard has developed a unique sound, voice and thought-provoking lyrics/poetry of his own, with tones of an indie-Americana style that is reminiscent of a 60s/70s ’ folk-rock, singer/songwriter. He has performed at festivals and venues across the Midwest and Canada with his trio the Charlie Millard Band, and continues to give a musical experience, like small movies for the ears.
