Acoustic duo kicks off Loutit District Library concert series

Another season of live music was kicked off at Loutit District Library on Sunday. Muskegon musicians Ruth and Max Bloomquist performed for the library crowd and played a mix of songs from their own personal catalog, as well as a variety of covers. "I found this show today to be particularly emotionally involving,' said Max, who plays the string bass. "I was really getting a warm vibe from the crowd - so I was more into it, so it was cool.'

According to library spokesman Larry Halverson, 96 people packed the library’s upper level to watch the husband-and-wife duo perform an hour-long set.

It opened the third annual free Sunday Concert Series at the library.

“We started off with a bang by having Ruth and Max Bloomquist, and we knew that they were a big draw and we’re really pleased with the attendance today,” Halverson said.

The Bloomquists said they enjoyed playing for a crowd in their own backyard.

“Sometimes we don’t play locally for months at a time,” Ruth Bloomquist said. “And so, when we do play and folks come out, its always a great time for us.”

Halverson said the library concerts will take place on the second Sunday of every month.
