The Red Jacket Jamboree

Event Dates and Times

3/10/2018 - Starts: 7:00 PM
Calumet Theatre, Calumet, MI
Old-Time Radio Variety Show to celebrate the Great Bear Chase!

The Red Jacket Jamboree, Calumet's old-time radio variety show, features stories, music and songs reflecting the history, landscape and culture of the Keweenaw Peninsula. The show is recorded in front of a live audience at the historic Calumet Theatre for radio broadcast at a later date. Two one-hour radio episodes are recorded per show- each having their own theme. The March episode are “The Great Bear Chase” and “Cabin Fever.” Special guests include Breathe Owl Breathe and storyteller Pete Griffin.

Hailing from Traverse City, MI, Breathe Owl Breathe spends their time playing and touring around North America, bringing laughter and excitement wherever they go. Their songs blend the carefree playfulness of childhood with the darker realities of growing up and growing old. Their performance is pure fun, and the joy they exude from the stage will lighten your spirit and send you home smiling.

Nicknamed the Storytelling Ranger, Pete Griffin has been sharing his stories with thousands of people. He started his career with the US Forest Service in 1973 as a wildlife biologist. When he was promoted to District Ranger on the Tongass National Forest in Juneau, Alaska in 1999, he started recording short natural history vignettes for radio, titled, “Tongass Trails.” The essays documented his exploration of the temperate rainforest and eventually incorporated Pete's experiences growing up in the U.P. (yes, he's a Yooper). The series ran five years, drawing public praise in the Capital City. Pete later narrated Shades of Green, a Forest Service production of video stories about life and land of the Tongass as told by the people who live and work there.

Following his retirement from the Forest Service, he told natural history stories aboard the Disney Wonder, a 2600-passenger cruise ship, along the Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska in its inaugural season. On board he performed stage shows for hundreds of passengers at a time, featuring unique aspects of some common and not-so-common species of plants and wildlife of Southeast Alaska, in addition to spending hours on deck with binoculars talking to passengers about glaciers, bears, whales, and the forests they were seeing. Pete will be sharing several stories during the program including “The Great Snowshoe Race.”

Every episode of The Red Jacket Jamboree includes performances by “The Copper Cats,” with Bill Carrothers on piano, Jerry Younce on guitar, Carrie Biolo on percussion and vibraphone and Harry South on bass; and humorous sketches by the Red Jacket Actors as well as a little Keweenaw trivia!

The show is a production of Main Street Calumet and Real People Media. The program is made possible with support from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and private donors. More information is at the website: The performance is Saturday, March 10 at 7pm. The audience is asked to be in their seats 10 minutes prior to the performance. Tickets for reserved seating can be purchased online at or by calling the box office at (906) 337-2610.
