7th Annual Benefit Concert in Honor of Helen’s Memory

Cafe 704, Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth, 704 Airport Blvd., Ann Arbor MI

Laz played a number of concerts at Cafe 704 over the years, always with his wife Helen, until she passed away in 2012. To honor her memory, and to celebrate her life, Laz is dedicating this yearly concert to her. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to two organizations: one that supports nature preservation, and the other, an emergency shelter for homeless children and their families. Both of these causes were very close to Helen’s heart.

Laz will be joined by a band of special guests, all of whom recorded or performed with Helen. Laz and his guests will sing some of Helen’s songs, as well as original and traditional music in both folk and classical styles.

For Pete’s Sake — Seeger Birthday Tribute

The Ark Coffeehouse, 316 S. Main St. Ann Arbor, MI

This year marks the 100th birthday of folk legend Pete Seeger, and our 10th annual tribute concert is a celebration of his life and music. The concert will once again be a benefit for the Ark; it feels fitting, as we celebrate the life of a man whom Bruce Springsteen has called “the grandfather of American folk music,” to honor and support a folk music institution that has brought such great music to our community for more than 50 years. We’ll tell stories and, in the true Seeger tradition, lead lots of singalongs. Joining the three of us (San, Laz and Emily) will be Dick Siegel, Billy King, Jeanne Mackey, David Owens, Judy Banker, Michael Hough, and Jacob Warren.

Gemini at the Box Factory for the Arts

1101 Broad St., St. Joseph, MI

We’ll be doing our show for adults, consisting of our original songs, as well as classic songs of the 1960’s folk revival. For part of both sets of this concert we will be joined by a wonderful children’s choir called “All God’s Children Community Choir” and their their co-founding directors, Larry and Sandy Feldman. Comprised of a racially diverse group of boys and girls, ages three to eighteen, the choir was formed in 2001 with the goal of bridging the racial divide in the Benton Harbor - St. Joseph area. We have sung with “All God’s Children” a number of times in the last 18 years, and are honored to have them join us at this performance — both because of what they add to our concert musically, but also because of the hope for racial harmony which they represent.
