On Monday, September 5, Traverse City native Rachel B will be sharing her special brand of “empowerment pop” with visitors at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore). Rachel will be performing from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Platte River Campground Amphitheater, and the concert is free with a park pass.
Born Rachel Borovik, but better known by her stage name of “Rachel B,” the singer has cited Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Corinne Bailey Rae as her inspiration. Her style has been described as pop, jazz and soul combined. Rachel refers to her style as being “soulful empowerment pop.”
Rachel’s songs are sassy, imaginative and energetic, and she has been compared favorably to Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse.
All concerts are free with a park pass. Passes may be purchased at the Phillip A. Hart Visitor Center in Empire, Michigan and cost $15 (per vehicle) for seven days or $30 for an annual pass.
