Abigail Stauffer

. June 26, 2013.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is known to bring in international touring acts while also highlighting the amazing music born out of this region. A2's own Abigail Stauffer is a rising star in the local scene—primed and ready to own the outdoor stage at Top of the Park. She's already made her way to opening for Shawn Colvin at The Ark last year, and her latest album, No Contradictions (released May 30, 2013), is full of tunes simultaneously wistful and empowering. Her voice at once can be playful then radiate sentiment to really stir the audience's emotions, sometimes all in one track. She's the perfect songstress to prelude a summer sunset. 6pm. Free. Grove Stage, Top of the Park. www.a2sf.org—JG
