Frank Youngman and Seth Bernard
FRANK YOUNGMAN:

Frank has been playing all types of music his whole life.  A multi-instrumentalist, he has performed in places as diverse as The Improv Comedy Club in New York City to A Prairie Home Companion.  A founding member of The Lost World Stringband, The Pets, and Jive at Five, he continues to keep a busy recording and performing schedule.  He has just finished up his 35th year of teaching, the last seventeen years as the Director of Instrumental Music for the Lake City Area Schools.  The Uke was his first instrument.  

SETH BERNARD:

Born and raised on Earthwork Farm in rural Northern Michigan, Seth Bernard was brought up in the folk and farmstead culture with an enriching integrative experience of the arts, agriculture, and community. In 2001, Seth founded Earthwork Music, a renowned Michigan-based collective of successful independent musicians who focus their efforts on environmental advocacy, social justice, creative empowerment and community building.

Seth has traveled the world and blanketed the US as a magnetic performer and uplifting cultural worker and is equally at home fronting a large electrified ensemble as he is holding a crowd with nothing but an acoustic guitar. Seth has served as the Director of the Musical Ambassador Program for On the Ground where he helped cultivate partnerships and cultural exchanges between communities in southern Mexico, Ethiopia and eastern Congo and communities in Michigan with a focus on solidarity and creative collaboration. Eggs Bernard is a NMEAC Environmentalist of the Year Award winner for Arts Education and has worked with SEEDS and On Stage for Kids bringing nature-based experiential creative empowerment to young people across the Great Lakes region and beyond.

In early 2018, Bernard launched the Clean Water Campaign for Michigan, a social movement using storytelling and music to amplify the groundswell of support for water issues.

Seth is a prolific songwriter and recording artist with 12 solo albums and a dozen more collaborative projects in his catalogue. He's won 8 Jammie awards as a recording artist and producer, and has been a longtime iconic leader and steward of Michigans music community. His newest work, ""Eggtones"", is a four album series released over the last 2 years to critical acclaim.

I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.
-Greg Brown, Folk Legend

""This music not only swings, rocks, and groovesit matters. Its the voice of a real community, with a sound and a message the world needs to hear.""
-Bill McKibben, Author, environmentalist, journalist

""The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.""
-Jack Clark, Red House Concerts
