Presented by the Beaver Island Cultural Arts Association, the Chenille Sisters took Beaver Islanders and visitors on a rollicking ride of close harmony singing featuring a unique blend of funny, wise and vibrant songwriting and show-womanship. The concert was held in the Central Michigan University Gillingham Auditorium, starting at 7 p.m. on October 6, 2007. CDs were available for sale in the lobby during intermission. A donation basket was placed in the back of the hall near the door.
Transportation from town was arranged for anyone who might not have the ability to get out to CMU.
