University United Methodist Church (UUMC)

+ Google Map
1120 S. Harrison
East Lansing, MI 48823 United States
(517) 337-7744

Beginning the 2021 season, the new home for Ten Pound Fiddle concerts and Fiddle Scout events will be the University United Methodist Church (UUMC), 1120 S. Harrison, East Lansing.

This is the church with three bells, just north of the intersection of Harrison Road and Trowbridge Road, directly north of the Trowbridge Shopping Center.

The Copper Chimney Lounge is a beautiful, intimate room for small and medium-sized concerts. Larger shows will be held in the beautiful sanctuary with great acoustics. Events needing kitchen access will use Asbury Hall.

Key reasons for the move:  UUMC has differently-sized spaces that work very well for concerts, workshops, Fiddle Scouts, etc. so we can use a space that fits the event. There’s ample parking. UUMC has almost 200 parking spots! –  including ten handicapped spaces. And we know the space works because UUMC was the venue for the Fiddle in the ‘80s & ‘90s.

April Verch and Cody Walters

Friday, April 21 @ 7:30 pm
April Verch and Cody Walters

To listen to April Verch and Cody Walters is to be immersed in tradition. To watch them perform is to be transported. Be it regional Canadian roots, American old-time, 50’s Country, Scandinavian folk music, or something original that sounds as though it’s been around for a century—the one common thread is their love and reverence for the music and traditions that have been passed down to them.
