Often musicians, actors, and other artists head to either coast to find their fame, but not singer Ruby James. A Los Angeles native, James discovered Door County as a creative hub in 2007 during the Steel Bridge Songfest held annually in Sturgeon Bay. As a solo artist and the lead singer of Wifee and the Huzz Band, James says she has found a lot to love about Door County.
Now married and living in Door County, James attributes a lot of her love for the area to songwriter pat mAcdonald, who she calls one of the greatest of all of time.
James and many of her other friends from the Steel Bridge Songfest will host a tribute concert to mAcdonald this Saturday beginning outside the Door Community Auditorium at 6 p.m. with a courtyard show and potluck dinner before heading inside at 8 p.m.
