Steel Bridge SongFest '08 Builds Bridges of Creativity while Benefiting a Historic Drawbridge
The Steel Bridge SongFest enters its fourth season, June 12-14, of bringing together musicians, songwriters, historic preservationists and music fans. The annual benefit for the Michigan Street Bridge has helped to raise almost $150,000 to save and maintain the bridge, and to build community awareness of the importance of preserving it. Steel Bridge SongFest '08 will again last three days with more than 100 original acts performing on over a dozen stages. Trolley rides between all venues make it a truly worry-free and safe evening out on the town.
