"Canal Stories" with Hey Mavis & Leandra Drumm

Date

Aug 24, 2017
08:15pm – 10:30pm

Location
Hoover Auditorium

Hey Mavis is the husband and wife team of singer-songwriter Laurie Michelle Caner, playing banjo, and Ed Caner, playing fiddle and viola, accompanied by some of the best musicians in the region.

The duo’s music crosses the Americana, Texas two-step, bluegrass, folk and art rock genres and blends vocal harmonies, banjo, upright bass, fiddle and viola for a unique and innovative sound.

For their Lakeside performance, they will be joined onstage by artist and illustrator Leandra Drumm.

The Caners and Drumm recently came together to celebrate Akron, Ohio’s heritage by creating a book and album of original illustrations and songs based on stories about the Ohio and Erie Canal.

Hey Mavis formed in 2009 as part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Artist-in-Residence program. After hearing the group on a Michael Stanley Christmas album, producer Don Dixon immediately agreed to produce their debut album, Red Wine. It did well, quickly climbing the national folk radio charts, peaking at No. 5.

The album finished the year at No. 13 in Folk Alley’s “Top CDs of 2010” in the company of artists such as Tim O’Brien, Peter Rowan, Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Chieftains and Bob Dylan.

In 2013, Hey Mavis’ second album, Honey Man, was released. This album featured a fuller sound with guitar, drums, harmonica and string arrangements that appealed to a more mainstream audience. Hey Mavis doubled Red Wine’s sales with Honey Man, and it continues to gain favorable reviews.

They also released What I Did, produced by Yonder Mountain’s Adam Aijala.

Over the last few years, Hey Mavis has seen increasing success having ramped up touring efforts and graduating from humble porch concerts in the Cuyahoga Valley to appearances on NPR’s “Mountain Stage” and “Whad’ya know?” and seven consecutive sold-out concerts in Akron.

Laurie was a founding member of the regionally-acclaimed female vocal group The Rhondas and has facilitated songwriting workshops at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Kent State Folk Festival and Lakeside Chautauqua.

Ed has performed worldwide with more than 25 major artists, including Smokey Robinson, Page & Plant, Luciano Pavarotti and Wayne Newton. He teaches physics and innovation at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

Ed has a long history in Lakeside. He taught sailing for five years, managed the waterfront and was a member of the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra for more than 10 years.

Join Ed and Laurie Caner, along with illustrator Leandra Drumm for a gallery talk from 3-4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 24 in the lobby of Hoover Auditorium. They will discuss the creative collaboration that resulted in their upcoming book/CD of original illustrations and songs based on stories about the Ohio and Erie Canal, which they will share in their 8:15 p.m. concert that evening. The project is funded in part by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
