Foods for Living 10th Anniversary

fabheftonesfoodsforliving16b.jpgThere is a lovely locally-owned healthy food store at the very east edge of East Lansing, named Foods for Living. The folks who own it seem very fine and the people who work there seem rather happy to be there. (A good number of the folks working there are musicians.)

The store is well-organized, people smile and they have items I can not get elsewhere (pumpkin seed butter, whole grain teff, white buckwheat grains and a kind of cracker made with brown rice and nothing else, boring but useful on the road).

This month is the 10th anniversary of this store. They are having a lot of music this month because of it. Brian and I played there last Friday 4-6 and will be doing it again this week. Last week we got there a little early and got to hear Jen Sygit play banjo before we went on for our set. Jen always makes me smile (see photo).

We are on Friday, but if you can’t make it then, you’ll find other good musicians filling the other slots all weekend.

For the record, Brian’s band Scarlet Runner Stringband is playing at Woldumar Nature Center for their fall public event on Sunday starting at 11. I’m not sure how long that goes. Then after that, Brian and I are playing for the RicStar Music Camp benefit at VanAtta’s Greenhouse in Haslett. There are a good number of acts playing Saturday and Sunday for that event. We are looking forward to that (we play just after Jen Sygit there, too). On Sunday we play at 2:30pm. I hope you can come out.
