Ann Arbor’s guitar legend George Bedard had a lifetime experience this summer that few will ever be able to claim: he traveled to Honduras and played in a U.S. State Department Tour.
WEMU actually played a role in this development: Fans of the station, Lisa Kubiske, The U.S. Ambassador to Honduras and her husband stream WEMU online. When they heard George’s newest recordings, they knew it was time take his great American music beyond the 50 states.
George Bedard joined me to share memories of this summer’s tour and to preview his return to The Ark this Friday night. George will present his next installment of The History Of American Music series at The Ark on Friday night. From Honduras to Ann Arbor, George Bedard is a great musical ambassador and champion of American Music. You can catch George this weekend, October 10th at the Ark in Ann Arbor.
