Sturgeon Bay's Michigan Street Bridge was reopened to traffic in 2011. After decades of neglect and a long battle for preservation followed by a complete rehab of its historic structure, it is restored to its original glory. We like to think this ongoing collection of songs helped secure this happy ending. While the victory took many voices inside and outside our community, the music created at The Holiday Music Motel fueled the fight.
But the struggle against the onslaught of vacant, disposable culture goes on. And the steel bridge stands as a living reminder of the importance of resistance--what better symbol of connection, purpose, and permanence exists?
So we who write songs, who are inspired by impressive things both old and new, will continue to raise our voices, to create commotions to honor the bridge and commemorate the fight to save her.
