Jason Hawk Harris, Mark Lavengood, and Joe Sturgill are coming together for a super special, one of kind, songwriter in the round concert! In other words, don’t miss this one!
Jason Hawk Harris has played with bluegrass titans like Noam Pikelny and Michael Daves. The marquees have gotten bigger and the tours longer. Still, these days Harris often finds himself casting a wishful eye to the past. He laments the lost opportunity to collaborate with his uncle John Harris, who passed away in 1991. “He wrote sad country songs about heartbreak, love and shame, “Harris says, “and he sang them like it was the last thing he’d ever do.”
Taking up his uncle’s mantle, Harris’ songs offer nuanced explorations of life’s vagaries; matching determined honesty with vivid imagination. His upcoming record fuses robust musicianship with a poetic vision inspired by magical realists like Charles Williams and Haruki Murakami. His music, Harris explains, shares in their “audacious assumption that the physical and spiritual occupy the same plane of existence.”
2018 is going to be a big year for the Mark Lavengood Band. National and International tours, writing and recording, and breaking into new markets are among the top of the “to-do list” for Lavengood and his Grand Rapids-based entourage. Having recently relinquished his full-time position with Lindsay Lou, Lavengood is eager to bring his “Folk – Roots – Americana” sound to audiences he’s performed for near and far!
Anyone that has witnessed Lavengood perform will attest to these three key attributes: his big heart, wild energy on stage, and the aptitude on the many instruments that he plays. Having released 2 LPs and a 7 inch vinyl under his own name in conjunction with 2 LPs, an EP, and an album on the way with International touring act, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, Mark Lavengood is no stranger to the hustle of the music industry. He is currently promoting his third full length album, “We’ve Come Along,” released May 11th with Earthwork Music.
Joe Sturgill will be joining Lavengood and Harris as well. He’s a Spring Lake native and previously played in the West Michigan rock/funk/soul trio Four Finger Five. Joe has a new solo project that he will be sharing.
