ABOUT SETH BERNARD & MAY ERLEWINE
Michigan has, for some time now, been a deep resource for songwriters and roots musicians. Two favorites, Seth Bernard and "Daisy" May Erlewine, well-known to audiences as single acts, have been performing and recording together for over eight years . Now they are playing folk festivals all over the country and concerts at venerable folk institutions such as Club Passim in Boston and the Ark in Ann Arbor. In 2007, Seth and May were featured on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion".
Already seasoned songwriters with five solo records each and three duo albums to their names, Seth and May draw from a deep well of American folk, country, blues and soul music. May plays guitar, piano and violin and is a songbird reminiscent of Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris. Seth has drawn comparisons to Woody Guthrie and Neil Young as a magnetic communicator of ideas and a shape shifting folk rocker. They harmonize their voices and instruments beautifully, believing music can bring people together and proving so at every performance. Like all the best folk musicians, they have the ability to get everyone's attention and still a room. With their five piece band they can just as easily electrify a crowd and ignite a dance floor.
Seth and May's common belief in music to strengthen communities and to be a part of positive change has led to collaborations with numerous schools, camps, farms and non-profit organizations. They partnered with best selling author and famed environemtalist Bill McKibben and contributed songs to the www.350.org movement for Climate Change action. They have also fostered the creation of the Water Festival, a series of events in the Great Lakes region dedicated to music and education about preserving water quality and universal access.
The best way to find out what Seth and May are about is listen to their music, either at www.earthworkmusic.com, the official headquarters of the collective they have helped to create, or better yet in person. The duo will be performing a concert for you at the Good Work Collective in Traverse City, MI on June 22nd at 8:00pm. They will be performing with Brennan Andes on the bass and Michael Shimmin on the drums. Always an intimate experience, the duo is looking forward to playing in this beautiful space again.
