Put your ear to the pavement on Military Street in downtown Port Huron and you just might hear the beat of an almost unimaginably vibrant live music scene - one that vanished more than a half-century ago with the burning of the Dome in 1971.
"In the '50s, there were 17 clubs in Port Huron doing music almost seven nights a week," said Chris Troy, the St. Clair-based producer and director of the new film "Something in the Water: The History of Port Huron Music, Part I."In the early 1960s, Joni Mitchell played the Folk Cellar, below the old Military Street Cafe. So did Gordon Lightfoot. In a coup, Troy interviewed Joni for the movie. Premiering at McMorran Auditorium in Port Huron on Nov. 11. Tickets here
