SOLD OUT – The Sweet Water Warblers: Rachael Davis, May Erlewine, Lindsay Lou

April 12, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

Michigan songbirds, Rachael Davis, Lindsay Lou and May Erlewine have each carved out successful careers on the American Roots Music circuit and have grown to respect each other's work. When they finally gelled into a potent musical force, it was natural - three singing sirens and multi-instrumentalists whose repertoire swings from gospel and bluegrass to soul and even joyful interpretations of pop. Their three-part vocal harmonies are sublime, and they trade instruments including mountain fiddle and banjo, uke, guitar and double bass.

Ray Kamalay and His Red Hot Peppers + Annual Membership Meeting

Friday, March 18 @ 7:30 pm

In the early 1930’s America enjoyed a heyday of small band jazz... hot jazz, laced with exciting improvisation, ballads - blue and melancholy, and stories of joy and tragedy.

With some of the finest players in the United States, they play this music with all the excitement and sentiment typical of the period. 

Annual Ten Pound Fiddle Membership Meeting, 6 pm – 7 pm. All are welcome. (Only) Fiddle members vote on any issues. Meet the Fiddle Board of Directors. Held at the UUMC before the concert.

Susan Werner – Cancelled

Friday, April 8 @ 7:30 pm

The Ten Pound Fiddle has just been informed that Susan Werner has Covid-19 and is not able to perform in East Lansing tomorrow evening. So, sadly, the Fiddle concert for tomorrow (Friday, April 8) is cancelled. We wish Susan well and look forward to rescheduling with her for our 2022-23 season.

Advance ticket sales for the Susan Werner concert will be automatically refunded; no action is required on the part of purchasers.

As audiences will testify, Werner’s been knocking it out of the park – or concert hall – all around the U.S. for twenty years. Renowned as a charismatic performer, she’s known above all for challenging herself to conquer new styles, almost like mountaintops, every few years. Every 3-4 seasons, Werner returns to the Fiddle to share where her musical travels have taken her.
