CRYSTAL FALLS—On Sunday, Feb. 12, Michigan singer-songwriter Kitty Donohoe will perform the featured concert at the Second Sunday Folk Dance here.
 The concert begins at 4 p.m. with hosts Bette and Dean Premo (White Water) performing a short concert set.
 Donohoe will follow immediately.
 After the concert, food and beverages will be served and the dance part of the evening begins with Bette Premo & the Front Parlor Dance Band playing tunes and providing dance instruction until 7 p.m.


 For those who want to make music, fiddler Bob Arthur will lead an old-time music jam session starting at 1 p.m. at the dining hall.
 Admission is $7/adult and children under 15 are free.
 Ann Arbor-based songwriter and Michigan Emmy recipient Kitty Donohoe has five critically acclaimed albums to her credit.
 Her songs clearly reflect both her Irish and her American roots.
 “Her natural sense as a storyteller merges with a love of language and an ear for melodies to create songs about the aspects of life that move most of us, from everyday to the rarer moments we encounter,” said the Premos.
 Her soaring vocals and powerful back-up rhythm instrumentation on guitar and cittern have been acclaimed by Irish Music Magazine.
