Darcy Wilkin to launch new CD
Darcy Wilkin

If the name Darcy Wilkin sounds familiar, it’s probably because this singer-songwriter from Kalamazoo has a few alter egos: She is a member of the local Americana band The Corn Fed Girls and half of the duo Danger Deer and co-hosts weekly the Grassroots radio show with her dad, Mark Sahlgren, on WMUK 102.1 FM.

She is also a solo artist who is launching the release of her new CD, Bristol, with a show at Bell’s Eccentric Café on Feb. 8. The show will also feature some of Wilkin’s fellow musicians, including Corn Fed Girls member Sarah Fuerst, Cori Somers, Bill Caskey, Drew Howard and Sahlgren.

The seated show begins at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 the day of the show and available at and Bell's General Store.
