Neil Woodward's musical performances bring to life the Michigan Experience for Great Lakes audiences and visitors from around the world. Neil's first time to play at The Ark was 1975. He is recipient of Michigan State University's Michigan Traditional Arts 2018 Heritage Award for leadership and artistry in folk music. In 2003 the State of Michigan Legislature officially designated Neil “Michigan’s Troubadour” in recognition of his life-long commitment to preservation of Great Lakes folk music and culture. Historical settings: Greenfield Village/Henry Ford and Crossroads Village/Huckleberry Railroad; and modern: schools, libraries, parks, festivals, lighthouses, theaters, and homes present Neil's award-winning instrumental skills and storytelling. Tonight Neil appears with guitarist Gary Weisenburg, and a special treat: step dancing from Sheila Graziano!
