It ain’t a concert to benefit the environment without some local singer-songwriter duos and an experimental acoustic roots band. This year, the Michigan League of Conservation Voters (Michigan LCV) is taking it to The Ark for a night of pure Michigan with Earth Tones.
Thursday, September 22nd at 7:30 pm, you can bust a move with singers-songwriters May Erlewhine & Seth Bernard, Jay Stielstra Trio, Chris Buhalis, bluegrass band Dragon Wagon, and the all-female Detroit roots-country quartet Stella!.
And, for all you political wonky enviros, your $40 ticket ($10 for students) will get you the chance to rub shoulders with Former Congressman Mark Schauer who will be honored at the event. Schauer is now the National Co-Chair for the BlueGreen Alliance Jobs21! Initiative.
Don’t know much about Michigan LCV? Well, you know how some politicians don’t think much for clean water, air and protected land? This group works to make the environment a priority in Lansing by educating lawmakers and the public, electing environmental champions into public office, and holding them accountable for their votes and decisions. It’s a damn important line of work that needs a little lovin’ and music from the Ann Arbor community to make its voice loud and strong all the way up there in Lansing.
