The year 2018 marks the 15th anniversary of Great Lake Swimmers. Over seven albums, multiple EPs, live broadcasts, and reissues, the Toronto-based project led by singer-songwriter Tony Dekker has established itself as a beloved indie folk act in their native Canada and beyond. The CBC has called them "a national treasure," and their music has taken them around the world, sharing a sound that is at once familiar and distinct, using the tools of folk music as the starting point to delve deeper. Great Lake Swimmers have twice been nominated for Juno Awards, and they have shared stages with Robert Plant, Feist, and Calexico, and have appeared as headliners for many of Canada’s major folk festivals. They come to Michigan with a new release, "The Waves." Native Harrow opens.
