Great American troubadour, Michael Johnson, returns for Thrasher's 15th year anniversary

Singer-songwriter Michael Johnson will help the historic Thrasher Opera House celebrate its 15th anniversary by making a special appearance on Saturday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m.  His performance not only marks 15 years since its renovation and reopening, but since his appearance on stage as the very first artist to ever be presented by the Thrasher!

Best remembered for Billboardcharting hits like “Bluer Than Blue,” “Give Me Wings,” "This Night Won't Last Forever" and forays into pop and country music, Michael Johnson returns to his folk troubadour roots with his first new solo project in 15 years, Moonlit Déjà Vu (2013)! Beautifully produced and loaded with rich, moving songs, Moonlit Déjà Vu finds the artist in the midst of an amazing personal and artistic renaissance with his signature vocals and legendary guitarwork fully intact. A highlight is a moving duet with his adult daughter Truly Carmichael, with whom he was only recently reunited after her being given up for adoption during his youth.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Sponsorship is provided by Tim and Mary Lyke. Accommodations provided by the Heidel House Resort and Spa.

Tickets for this wonderful celebration of 15 years are only $18 and available at the Thrasher office, Knowledge Emporium, Green Lake Bank (Green Lake); Pick N’ Save, Ripon Drug (Ripon); Twister (Princeton) or by calling (920) 294-4279. Tickets available at
