After two years, Michigan folk musician Chris Bathgate is back on stage with new songs
Michigan does not seem to have a shortage of indie folk musicians and bands.
Stateside's Emily Fox sat down with one folk musician who's back on the scene after a two-year hiatus from the stage.
Chris Bathgate is an Ann Arbor-area musician who spent a long time traveling the state and the country playing his music. Sometimes he comes with a full band with percussion and electric base and fiddle backing him up. Sometimes it's just him with guitar, a loop machine, and snare drum.
Bathgate says after the two-year break, he feels invigorated to be back.
"A lot of it comes from new material. With new material comes a new love for performing and sharing these songs," says Bathgate.
Bathgate will be on tourthis month playing in Michigan cities including Holland, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Mount Pleasant and Lansing.
