Red Sea Pedestrians celebrate WMU connections
Tonight the Red Sea Pedestrians trek back to Western Michigan University for a performance at the School of Music. All 6 members of the eclectic klezmer-swing-folk band are WMU alumni. Ian Gorman tells Cara Lieurance about the band’s origins, the development of its unique and versatile style, and the influence of regional stories and folklore from Michigan in their music. This is the first performance featuring new drummer/percussionist Ben Lau.
