TRAVERSE CITY — The National Cherry Festival announced their final music acts for the 98th National Cherry Festival.

The Accidentals and Joshua Davis will perform on Saturday, July 6 on the Pepsi Bayside Music Stage, presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

“Bringing our hometown favorites to the stage, we couldn’t think of a better way to close out the 98th National Cherry Festival!” said Executive Director, Kat Paye.


The Accidentals (Sav Buist and Katie Larson) started playing music professionally when they were 15 and 16 years old after meeting in their public high school orchestra program in Traverse City. They have worked professionally in the music industry since they were teens, launching their first album in 2012, just months before they transferred to Interlochen Arts Academy and participated in the first-ever Singer Songwriter program as Junior/Seniors.
