Benton Harbor, MI

Some people might call May Erlewine “Michigan’s Songbird,” but her songs have traveled far beyond her home state. One of the most prolific and passionate songwriters of her generation, May’s music has touched the hearts of people all over the world. Her words have held solace for weary hearts, offered a light in the darkness, and held a lot of space for the pain and joy of being alive in these times. When she starts to sing, there’s no way around it. Welcome to the moment, everyone.

May pulls from a wide variety of sounds and influences to create her unique musical landscape. You’ll hear traditional folk roots, old time country swing, soul, and rock and roll but mostly she’s inspired by the hearts of the people and the one in her chest. This music is about feeling and it’s about telling life’s stories.

Before the show and during intermission, The Livery will be on hand with a selection of their craft brews as well as their spent grain pizzas for sampling.

Sponsored by The Southwestern Michigan Tourist Council and The Livery.
