Copper Country Preservation and Real People Media is pleased to announce that we have received funding for the 2021-2022 Season (Our fifth!) of The Red Jacket Jamboree from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
The Red Jacket Jamboree offers antique experience for local residents, tourists and radio audiences. To date we have recorded 46 hourlong episodes featuring dozens of performers: storytellers, musicians, singer-songwriters, local historians, and authors. This exceptional educational and entertaining family show promotes the Upper Peninsula to audiences throughout Michigan. The show stimulates tourism and tourist revenue within our area and throughout the Upper Peninsula.
The Red Jacket Jamboree would not be possible without funding from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. We are deeply grateful for the grant and to the people of Michigan who support cultural events in our state. The arts add to the quality of life for our residents and to the visitor experience. We welcome the opportunity to share the stories of Michigan's Copper Country with the people of Michigan and beyond!
