This will be my first performance at the Green River Schoolhouse, and I'm really looking forward to it! The venue is literally an old reconditioned one room schoolhouse located in the northwest Lower Peninsula of Michigan that hosts folk/Bluegrass/Americana style music acts during the warmer months of the year. I'll be performing from 7-9 PM, so if you're in the neighborhood, stop on in!
I'm excited to be performing for the very first time at Short's Brew Pub (121 N. Bridge St., Bellaire, MI)! I've been a fan of Short's beers and ales for some years now, so much so that I mention them in three of my songs. I'll be playing and singing from 7-9 PM. Great Michigan craft brews and homegrown Michigan music make a great pairing, so, if you're in the neighborhood, stop on in!
I was the very first performer in Shady Lane's Summer Music on the Patio series last July, and I had a grand time playing to a nice crowd, with vineyards all around. I'm on from 5-8 PM. Great Michigan wine and homegrown music make a fine match!
On Friday, July 24, I'll boogie on up north to play Left Foot Charley Winery, at 806 Red Drive Traverse City, MI 49684. Left Foot Charley is an award winning winery that I've followed from their very beginning, and this will be my 5th time performing there. Great Michigan wine and cider and homegrown music make a fine match! I'll play from 6-8 PM.
I'm always geeked to play at Michigan By The Bottle Tasting Room again, and I'll be back on Friday, July 10th. I'll play two sets, at 7 PM and 8:30 PM. MBTB Tasting Room unites the founders of MichiganByTheBottle.com with six Michigan wineries to bring a taste of the state's far-flung wine trails to metro Detroit. Fine Michigan wine and homegrown Michigan music makes a great pairing, if you ask me, so stop on in and enjoy some of both!
Bio: I’ve worn many musical hats during my years of playing professionally, but my heart is centered in American roots music in its myriad variations. I sing and I play acoustic 6 & 12-string guitars, harmonica and electric bass. I write songs about anything that catches my attention, often with a hum...See Full Bio
From the What-Have-You-Done-For-Me-Lately Dept.: I'm #10 on the ReverbNation Singer Songwriter charts for Detroit, MI. (Insert smirk here)
"In the best traditions of folk music, George’s songs evoke personal experiences and historical events, and George certainly has had some experiences, let me tell you. But the experiences of which he sings so truthfully here, while almost mundane when taken literally, are made to seem so much more meaningful, so much more heartfelt in his hands and within his voice. These arrangements are as near to the folk tradition as one could hope, are exactly all that’s necessary for each song, and when accompaniment and backing vocals are used, they feature David Mosher on several traditional instruments, as well as Bill Arnold on dobro, providing simple support to George’s already ample foundations."
