(Nashville, Tuesday, June 12) On June 30, just before the stroke of midnight, Michelle will be preparing to walk on stage to celebrate her July 1 birthday with a solo performance at the Stan Rogers Folk Festival in Canso, Nova Scotia. Of course, July 1 is Canada Day as well, so the rare midnight solo show will be a celebration of both Michelle’s and Canada’s birthdays!

Throughout the Stanfest weekend Michelle will also join in some of the other festivities. Michelle will appear “Up Close & Personal” at the Fox Island Stage on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. On Sunday she will be a part of “The Origins of Country Music” seminar at the Fogerty’s Cove Stage at 12:00 p.m. Later that afternoon Michelle will be back at the Fox Island Stage for the workshop “The Hit Makers” at 4:00 p.m.

In its sixteenth year, the 2012 Stan Rogers Folk Festival runs from Friday, June 29, through Sunday, July 1, and is held at 104 Queens Street in Canso, NS. Visit theStanfest website for more information.
