Sable Point Lighthouse Keepers Association are welcoming Ark Harbor for three evening performances at our lighthouses. Ark Harbor features three veteran folk guitarists with a unique blend of soft rock, blues, folk and hauntingly beautiful ballads that will touch your heart.
Ark Harbor is led by guitarist Jim Novak, and joined by fellow band mates Paul Cerny and Dale Johnson. Originally from the Chicago area, Jim first got into music playing in the Second City’s Club and coffee house scene. With his childhood friend Paul Cerny they started a singing group called the Newport’s. Their popularity led to a series of college concerts and a regular job as the opening act for the Stars of the WGN Barn Dance.
Jim is a Vietnam veteran. When he returned from service, he and Paul reunited for several years and along with Dale Johnson they shared their music on the coffee house circuit on Chicago’s Northside. In 2008 Jim released his first “Be Still” to great reviews as did his second release in 2011, “Meetin’ Tonight.
Paul now resides in Georgia, Dale in South Carolina and Jim in Grand Haven, Mi. They reunited four years ago to do a benefit concert for Worship on the Waterfront. In 2012 and 2013 they reunited again to lead a Sunday evening of worship for Worship On the Waterfront, a Sunday evening service at Grand Haven’s waterfront stadium.
They reunite again this time to play three different Nights at the Lights Events. July 16th at 7pm they will be at Little Sable Point, July 17 at 7pm they will be at White River Lighthouse and on July 18 at 7pm they will perform out on the breakwall in Ludington at the Ludington Breakwall Light.
These are free concerts come enjoy the outdoors, relive 60’s folk music, experience beautiful sunsets and tour the lighthouses for the standard admission charge.
