Music in the Mitten

There’s a special bond among Michiganers, particularly in the music community.  And there is one woman, Elle Lively -Pelegrom, in this unique fraternity who is playing a significant role in supporting out-of-work artists.  Her work manifests as a love for her fellow musicians in good times AND in bad.  Musician Jake Allen joins in on our conversation to talk about being part of a gig economy during our nations ‘shelter in place’ mandates.  It’s called Music in the Mitten, and our story starts here.

This show is part one of a three-part series focusing on individuals and their communities helping each other during the COVID-19 pandemic.
