ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Come out to the Vernors Room to submerge yourself in a night full of folk music, Michigander style!

Our headliner band, BILL BYNUM AND CO., hails from Detroit. When his parents moved from Arkansas to the mitt back in the 40s, they packed their love for country and bluegrass music, which was later instilled in their son, Bill. Johnny Cash and Buck Owens were a couple of his childhood favorites; however, he was fueled to write his own lyrics upon listening to "Yours Forever Blue" by Steve Earle and The Del McCoury on a local radio station. The band describes these songs as both traditional and original with a sound that is both as comfortable as your favorite pair of old jeans yet as fresh as a blade of new grass. The "company" is composed of Mary Seelhorst (fiddle and vocals), Dave Keeney (dobro and guitar), Chuck Anderson (double bass), along with the occasional help of David Mosher (mandolin and vocal harmony).

JEFF PIANKI from Midland and JOE HERTLER from Orion will be joining to share their music with those in attendance. Also check out the debut of Ferndales's fabulous Drinkard sisters in their newest project, CAP'N JERRY and the MERMAIDS!

Be sure to come check it out! It's sure to be a fun time!
