A folk-inspired concert retelling of the age-old classic tale. Woven through with readings of Charles Dickens’ own words, Steve Clark’s original songs breathe new life into Ebenezer’s tale, inspiring love, friendship, and a generous holiday spirit.
Chicago transplant singer-songwriter, Steve Clark moved to the area in 2016 and immediately started networking with area musicians. The Stone Fruit Collective is a group of multi-instrumental musicians who combine in different ways, playing a variety of styles throughout the area. Steve Clark has written a number of full story-based productions. The Haunting of Old Ebenezer premiered in Chicago in 2012 and returns to northern Michigan after a sell-out run in Leelanau and Grand Traverse Counties in 2022.
