Jerry PerrineOLD TIME PIANO
Choctaw Artist Jerry Perrine Jerry Perrine listen
For over 35 years, Choctaw Artist Jerry Perrine has specialized in the classic American piano styles of ragtime, early jazz, blues, boogie-woogie and southern gospel. As a teenager, Perrine taught himself how to play the ragtime piano music of Scott Joplin and others. As he studied the music and history of that piano style, he learned of other styles and pianists such as Eubie Blake, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller and many others. In honor of Native American Heritage Month, he will perform an original ragtime suite for piano which celebrates the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, of which he is a member.

Bill Bynum & CoACOUSTIC AMERICANA FOR VETERANS DAY Bill Bynum & Co. listen
Bill Bynum & Co.
When a job at a steel plant brought Bill Bynum's parents to Detroit from Arkansas in the ‘40s, they brought country music with them. Based in Southeast Michigan, Bill Bynum brings that background to his sound. Bill Bynum & Co’s sound of guitar, fiddle, dobro, and bass leans into country or veers towards bluegrass, and their powerful vocals and lyrics take you on a musical journey. Both traditionals and originals have a sound as comfortable as old blue jeans and as fresh as a new blade of grass. Bill Bynum is on lead vocals and guitar; Hester Hasheian, fiddle and backing vocals; Bill Arnold, dobro; and Scott Kendall, bass.

KlezmephonicJEWISH FOLK MUSIC
Klezmephonic Ann Arbor Klezmer Trio listen

Rollicking freylakhs, sweet cradle songs, and hot American vaudeville tunes are brought to life by the Ann Arbor-based band Klezmephonic. Their sound stems from the Eastern European Jewish folk music of the 19th and 20th centuries and is sprinkled with swing and Roma stylings. The clarinet (Jennie Lavine) wails and soars over the dance inducing rhythms of bass (Dave Sharp); accordion & clarinet (Will Cicola); and guitar (Alex Belhaj). The musicians bring a mix of classical and jazz training and years of experience interpreting traditional styles. Live stream video and event subscriptions available on UMHS Gifts of Art Facebook.
