Bailey joined the Beaver Island Music Festival board because of her passion for the island and her love for the music and the arts. “I want to help promote and carry on a tradition that I had the opportunity to experience while growing up on Beaver Island. BIMF is a wonderful way to bring people to the place that I fortunately get to call home.”
