MICHIGAN FOLK MUSIC
by Neil Woodward

Michigan Troubadour Neil Woodward preserves Great Lakes folk music and culture through his performances and teaching. With his widely acknowledged skill with over a dozen instruments such as guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, concertina, dulcimer, harmonica and tin whistle, you never know what he’ll pull out next. Winner of nine Detroit Music awards, Woodward acknowledges Michigan’s backbone of light keepers, migrant workers, sailors, soldiers, teachers, mothers, fathers, lumberjacks, railroaders, farmers, hobos and auto workers in original and traditional Michigan folk songs.

TRADITIONAL JAZZ
Swinging Strings with special guest James Dapogny
Swinging Strings highlights the often overlooked contributions of string instruments (bass, guitar and violin) to jazz. With Kurt Krahnke on bass, Rod McDonald on guitar, and Paul Winder on violin and viola, this ambitious trio takes on works by some of the great jazz violinists, especially Joe Venuti and his guitarist sidekick Eddie Lang. You can also expect to hear music from the rich jazz traditions of the 1920's, 30's, and 40's, including Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, Fats Waller, Walter Donaldson and Duke Ellington.  With honorary “String” James Dapogny on piano, Swinging Strings will swing even harder.
