Spring is finally here, and what better way to bring on the seasonal change than with bluegrass, brews and good friends? On Friday, April 11, the Gardenia Bluegrass & Roots Festival takes place at the Royal Oak Farmers Market. The concert is headlined by Keller & the Keels, an appalachian bluegrass trio comprised of jam legend Keller Williams alongside the husband and wife combo Larry and Jenny Keel. Their set will feature a mix of twangy originals with acoustic renditions of cover tunes by the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and the like. Opening bands include A2 favorites The Ragbirds, the Catfish Mafia and the Crane Wives. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Camp Casey, a nonprofit horseback riding program for children with cancer. Advance tickets available at The Ark Box Office and the Michigan Union Ticket Office.

7:30pm. $30 / $50 VIP (includes early entry with exclusive performance by Whiskey Shivers and two complimentary drink tickets). Royal Oak Farmers Market, 316 E. 11 Mile Rd., Royal Oak. 248-246-3276. grandcircusmedia.com
