After performing on the island last year, country music duo American Young knew they had to bring more friends with them when they eventually came back. American Young will headline the inaugural Door of the Dead Songwriters Festival this weekend on Washington Island. In addition to a Saturday night concert at the Trueblood Performing Arts Center, members Kristy Osmunson and Jon Stone will have several other Nashville artists with them in tow for other events during the weekend. Osmunson is hopeful fans and songwriters will head to the “Key West of the North.”
The Door of the Dead Festival will also feature an event at Fiddlers Green on Friday night and at the Red Cup on Saturday morning.
