MARQUETTE, Mich.—The Beaumier Coffee House Concert Series at Northern Michigan University will continue with its second show of the season on Saturday, Oct. 5. Performances by two singer-songwriters, Jenn Copeman and Angela Josephine, will begin at 7 p.m. in the Peter White Lounge of the University Center. Admission is free but donations are suggested. Coffee, lemonade and snacks will be provided.
Copeman delivers a diverse collection of original music spiced with select covers. She recently moved back to Marquette from Austin, Texas. She has been playing guitar since the age of 12 and played shows all over the United States, including a spotlight on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry and in the Colgate Country Showdown. When not touring solo, she joins forces with a variety of musicians, custom tailoring her brainchild, The Copeman Band. Jenn has released her first full length CD titled "Pursuit."
Josephine grew up in Munising and describes herself as a “singer, songwriter and seeker of the sacred in the simple stuff.” Since becoming a solo performer, she has graced the stage of countless festivals and venues, while coffee houses across the Midwest have warmed to the soulful brew of her music. In 2006, her album “Grace Exhaled” was a finalist in the Detroit Music Awards and in 2007 she was an Artist Ovation Contest Winner for Unity Festival in Muskegon. Her song, “Spirit of Motherhood,” received an honorable mention in the Great Lakes Songwriting Competition. In 2011, she again was a finalist for the Detroit Music Awards in the category of Best Instrumentalist for hammered dulcimer. She also has performed at ArtPrize for artists who interpret music with paint. Josephine often incorporates her original paintings in performances.
