Ice, Wine, Beer and Blues Fest features Matt Schofield

(MARSHALL, MI) – The Ice, Wine, Beer and Blues Fest returns to downtown Marshall on February 4-5. This 2 day celebration of winter, alcohol and the blues is one of Marshall’s most popular events every year! The festival features downtown wine and beer tastings on Friday nights from 6-10 p.m. at various venues, and a blues concert on Saturdays at the Franke Center for the Arts, 214 E. Mansion St.
The festival will also feature spectacular live ice sculptures by master sculptor John Merucci and his team. The ice carving takes place downtown from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and from 10 a.m. until the end of Saturday.

At each of the eight Friday locations, tasting participants receive a glass of wine or beer and appetizers. People over 21 can purchase a bracelet anywhere for $ 25 and receive 10 wine / beer tastings.

On Saturdays, stroll the streets of downtown Marshall and admire the Olympic-inspired sculptures. The festival will close on Saturday evening with a live blues concert featuring Matt Schofield. A pulled pork dinner from the Grand River Brewery will be available for $ 15.

Starting at 6 p.m., local favorites The Fat Animals will open the night at the Downstage Club. At 8 p.m., headliner Matt Schofield will take the main stage.
A member of the British Blues Hall of Fame, Schofield is considered one of the best British blues guitarists of all time, alongside icons like Eric Clapton and Peter Green. His performance is part of the Franke Center Blues Series.

Concert tickets cost $ 28 in advance or $ 30 at the gates. Advanced tickets can be purchased online at The Franke or call the Franke Center for the Arts at 269-781-0001 and can be redeemed for a bracelet on the night of the event at Handle & Hinge, Living MI or Eastend Studio.
