September 3rd- First Tuesday Concert – Andru Bemis

Andru Bemis is an American Folk musician, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (banjo, fiddle, and guitar). He has toured hundreds of thousands of miles throughout North America—traveling mainly by train, bus, and public transportation—performing solo and
sharing shows with a host of world-class performers, including two notable tours with actor/comedian/musician John C. Reilly. Bemis is known for his original songs which sound as if they were written a hundred years ago, and for taking lesser-known traditional songs and adapting them in ways which are inventive and memorable.

The First Tuesday Concert Series is sponsored by the Sanilac Consortium for the Arts.
