Born in Flint and now a Michigan institution, pianist / composer Mark "Mr. B" Braun returns to Ellis for a second annual spring blues, jazz and boogie-woogie concert. Mr. B will be joined in the beautiful riverside expansion by one of his piano mentors (and Black History Month Blues Series favorite) Bob Seeley and the Swiss master of the boogie-woogie, Silvan Zingg. Each artist will take a turn at the Ellis piano, and, if we're lucky, sneak in a duet--and, if we're really lucky, treat us to an all-hands (literally) on deck number.
The April 19 concert is presented by the Friends of Ellis and the Monroe County Library System and it's a celebration of and for Library Friends county-wide--but you don't have to be a capital-F Friend to attend. Free and open to the public, no advance ticket required. Seating is general admission, first-come, first-served. Light refreshments will be served.
