We prevailed on Dr. Mike Grossman, our Board President, to perform a song he recently wrote at the Care Fund Concert this year. It’s called “Last Questions” and draws on the many times hospice patients and their loved ones looked for help in understanding their journey. Mike agreed only after recruiting the multi-talented Elizabeth “Liz” Grugin to sing with him. “Final Questions” looks into the heart of hospice care from the prospective of both the patient and care givers.
Please join us on Saturday, Nov. 13th at Kaufman Auditorium. Tickets are $25 and available by calling 906-273-1653 and via Eventbrite.
An evening with Joshua Davis and May Erlewine, Saturday, November 13 and 7 PM. This is at the Kaufman Auditorium, Marquette. Tickets are $25 at Evenbrite.com and Trillium House. More Information Here.
Trillium House welcomes Marquette’s own Joshua Davis for a night of music, storytelling and entertainment. An upbringing that occupied the urban landscapes of Detroit while spending summers in the wilderness on the Southern shore of Lake Superior brings into view the backdrop of Davis’ works.
For over 15 years Joshua has made his living sharing his songs, stories and knowledge across the US and Canada. His music is steeped in ragtime blues, sweet jazz and real country but Davis’s broad schooling in the cultural, political and musical roots of American Tradition has resulted in more that a simple retelling of universal themes.
Dubbed, “The Michigan version of the Great American Songscape”, his catalog is a seamless snapshot of America past and present.
May Erlewine’s gift for writing empathetic and engaging songs that feel at once fresh and soulfully familiar has earned her a broad, devoted fan base well beyond her deep-set Michigan roots. Her sons show a very real connection and concern with everyday folk. Erlewine uses here music as a platform for positive change. We look forward to having May in Marquette and listening to her music.
Raised in a home full or art and music, Erlewine began writing songs at a very young age. As a teenager she hitchhiked across country, ho9ning her skills as a performer and absorbing the kind of stories and landscapes that would inform her music.
With a long list of full length albums, two Eps and numerous collaborations, Erlewine’s catalog is proof of her creative power. For more information, visit her website at Mayerlewine.com or facebook.com/mayerlewine.
