The next Beaumier Coffee House Series concert features two of Marquette's most prominent folk acts: Great Lakes Graham & the Fiddle Man and singer-songwriter Jerry Mills. They will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1, in the Peter White Lounge of the NMU University Center. Admission is free (donations are encouraged).
The folk bluegrass duo Great Lakes Graham & the Fiddle Man is composed of Troy Graham and Allen Dupras. They have played all over Michigan and Wisconsin since May. They will play a mix of original and traditional songs.
Jerry Mills’ performance will be a rare local appearance that follows shows in London and Manchester, England, and precedes one in Ann Arbor. For 20 years, he has inspired audiences from Monaco to Sydney, Liverpool to Singapore and all across the United States. Composing hundreds of songs during his 30-year songwriting career, his performances offer a mix of compelling lyrics, music, humor and insight.
