August 16 – Monte Pride and Van Lente

Monte Pride is a Michigan-born, Michigan-based singer-songwriter & fingerstyle guitarist whose songs recall the delicate vocals of Simon & Garfunkel, with guitar-work reminiscent of Nick Drake and The Tallest Man on Earth. He blends haunting melodies with vivid lyricism,
bringing stories of love, loss, and longing to life in a complex array of healing, soul-stirring song.

A Michigan native, Gabrielle Schaub performs under her family’s name Van Lente. Accompanying herself with banjo or guitar, she sings original songs that take influence from artists such as Joanna Newsom and Sufjan Stevens. “Undulant and celestial, Schaub’s songs evoke the willowy wonder her intrepidness has enabled her to witness” Ben Evans.


September 6 – Rachael Davis

A Concerts in the Courtyard favorite returns to Lansing! Multi-instrumentalist Rachael Davis is as renown for her expressive and explosive voice as she is for uniting the often desperate worlds of folk, blues, country, and pop.”We don’t have Eva Cassidy anymore but we do have Rachael Davis” Susan Werner
