Two shows of great interest to WEMU listeners are coming up soon at The Ark: blues and roots singer-songwriter Seth Walker on Thursday, August 8th and Ann Arbor’s beloved roots-rock quartet Corndaddy on Friday, August 16th.
If you aren’t familiar with these musicians, you have two opportunities to learn about them when they perform live in the WEMU studio. Seth Walker will be Linda Yohn’s guest during “89.1 Jazz” at 10AM on Thursday to discuss his new CD, “Time Can Change” and his unique musical background which spans classical music to raucous rock-n-roll. Musical luminaries such as Marcia Ball proudly sing Walker’s praises. Seth Walker will also a sing a few acoustic blues tunes.
The quartet Corndaddy will join Jeremy Baldwin on The Roots Music Project this Saturday, August 10th to perform some of the songs on their newest CD “Heart of the Matter”. Kevin Brown, Jud Branam, Jerry Hancock and Hugh Huntley channel Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, The Byrds and Otis Redding through their own songs and arrangements. You’re bound to enjoy their wry lyrics and rowdy rhythms. “The Roots Music Project” with Jeremy Baldwin is heard from noon to 2PM Saturdays on WEMU. We are delighted to present these two live in-studio shows for you! We hope you can listen on 89.1 or WEMU.ORG.
