Since 2001, Andru Bemis has wandered the ends, edges and in-betweens of North America more times than he can count – by passenger train, foot, thumb, bicycle, bus, subway, ski and occasional aeroplane. Wearing a three-piece suit and a derby hat, he carries his beat-up instruments on his back; banjo, guitar, sometimes a fiddle or banjo-ukulele…Call him a “Folk” musician if you will. Bemis plays music for folks, simple as that. His unmistakable voice, lightning-fast banjo and expressive finger-picked guitar styles, quirky humor, engaging stage presence and exquisitely crafted tunes of travel, love and longing have earned Bemis a dedicated following through Mexico, Canada, the U.S. and beyond.
“Andru Bemis, Michigan’s premier neo folk artist…is a modern day train hopping, banjo slinging troubadour who has made a name for himself in small venues across the US. His charismatic live show gamers (accurate) comparisons to Arlo and Woody.” (ThisisHappening)
Check out his website for his full biography, links to hear his music and see some video clips.
General Admission, free will donation basket will be available. (When one of our church families first purchased Adru’s CD’s he mailed them to us, told us to listen to them and send him a check for whatever we thought they were worth. Amazing.)
