McFadden is a 2004 transplant from New York City, a jazz singer who sang and performed in cabarets. McFadden and her husband own and operate Molly's Bistro, which presents jazz music every weekend, ranging from jazz trios, guitar soloists and jazz horns to the Harlem String Quartet.

"Bay City does it right, you have phenomenal music on the river!" said McFadden. "We have a phenomenal resource in the Great Lakes Bay Region, so I thought why can't Michigan have the Michigan Jazz Trail?" McFadden continued.

Imagine, someday in the not-too-distant future, getting in a car and traveling to a series of inter-connected jazz festivals up and down the coasts of .... Michigan.

From Traverse City ... to Bay Detroit, and other points in between and beyond. National headliners sharing stages with regional jazz musicians as well as high school and college students. Venues outdoors and in historic theaters. Blues, Dixieland, soul mixed in. Workshops and after-hours jam sessions.
