Hey Mavis - Friday Night at The Summer Market
We are excited to announce that "Hey Mavis" will play Friday night at The Summer Market this year!
Hey Mavis crosses the genres of Americana, Texas Two-step, Bluegrass, Folk, and Art Rock. In their songwriting, the trio finds the fine threads within stories of all types--from the fantastic to everyday--and weaves them into "captivating musical journeys" (actor/yogi Kedric Wolfe).
Hey Mavis was formed in 2008 by nationally-acclaimed fiddler Ed Caner as part of the Artist-In-Residence program in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Hey Mavis is Laurie Michelle Caner (lead songwriter, vocals, banjo), Sarah Benn (songwriter, vocals, bass), and Ed Caner (viola profunda, fiddle, mixmaster). Ed has performed as soloist and sideman with countless artists, including Luciano Pavarotti, Smokey Robinson, Wayne Newton, Michael Stanley and Page and Plant. Laurie and Sarah both have extensive experience as members of the all-women vocal harmony group The Rhondas.
