The Accidentals return to their hometown of Traverse City — and their alma mater of Interlochen — to play a not-to-be-missed performance. Multi-instrumentalists Sav Buist and Katie Larson — joined on stage and in the studio by drummer Michael Dause — have crafted a genre all their own, and were recently named among Yahoo Music’s “Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017.”

Their adventure began roughly five years ago, when and Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Buist, a junior violinist, were paired for an academy orchestra event. The gifted young musicians became fast friends and before long, bandmates.

Dubbing themselves after the musical notes that fall outside of a key signature, The Accidentals recorded and released a pair of independent albums in 2012 and 2013, the latter funded by a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. Their original songs revealed a band with wide-ranging influences but always true to their orchestral roots. National applause and attention followed, as did acclaimed collaborations with some fellow local artists and independent filmmakers. The group has recently been signed by Sony Masterworks and released the album, “Odyssey.”
