Don Savoie honed his skills in the Detroit-Ann Arbor music scene that was so vibrant between the mid 1970s and the ‘80s. He’s opened for greats like Joe Cocker, Jackson Browne, Patti Smith, Jimmy Cliff and John Lee Hooker. He’s played the Chicago club scene, the Detroit Blues Fest, and Montreaux. The composer/arranger plays the guitar, piano and harmonica. After spending 15 years as a music professor at the University of Notre Dame, Savoie now teaches at Holy Cross College and plays 150 gigs across Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan. In 2016, he released his sixth album, “Slice of my Soul.”
Fridays by the Fountain
An outdoor lunch-time concert series, Fridays by the Fountain on the Jon R. Hunt Plaza is a summertime tradition in downtown South Bend! Each summer between the months of June and August, the concert series runs every Friday and features live entertainment from local Blues, Jazz, Rock, Folk, and Country bands. The concerts are free and run from 11:45am – 1:15pm.
Food vendors are available and they offer a variety of lunchtime favorites including pizza, sandwiches, salads and smoothies, or you may choose to bring your own! Tables are set in and around the plaza to give concertgoers a space to eat – or bring a blanket and relax on the lawn.
