Lady of the Lake
40th Anniversary
Reunion Concert


In 1983, Karrie Potter Richards, Pooh Stevenson and Wanda Degen formed Lady of the Lake, an-all female folk band named after a couple of old-time tunes Potter often played. The group debuted at a northern Michigan folk festival and continued performing for more than 10 years, gigging throughout Michigan and at festivals in Indiana, Ohio and Canada.

The women are all vocalists and multi-instrumentalists, and melodies from the autoharp, banjo, bouzouki, cello, guitar, mandolin and more can be heard throughout their repertoire, which is a mix of contemporary and traditional Appalachian, Celtic and folk songs.

Life eventually led the women in different directions, but they continued to hold reunion concerts about every five years. They will be back in action Friday evening (April 14) for a 40th anniversary concert at University United Methodist Church in East Lansing. The band will be accompanied by several musician friends, including Doug Berch, Kay Rinker-O’Neil, Dave Langdon, John Mikelsavage and Mike Ross.

Tickets are $20 for the public, $18 for Ten Pound Fiddle members and $5 for students and are available at the door or in advance at
