Folk singer/songwriter Drew Nelson has toured North America and Europe performing solo and opening for big names like Melissa Etheridge and Edwin McCain. On April 17 he plays a free, all-ages show at Watermark 920 as part of the venue’s spring concert series, Watermark Live, which showcases Michigan-based talent.
Nelson’s 2009 album “Dusty Road to Beulah Land” landed raves from fans and critics while topping the folk-radio charts. It also caught the attention of the Grammy-winning indie label Red House Records, which became his new home.
One of the openers is Muskegon native singer/songwriter Christopher C. Cordle, who is also one of the event’s co-organizers. The event is free, but it’s doubling as a charity drive, collecting jars of peanut butter (or small monetary donation) to benefit the Kids Food Basket in Muskegon. There will also be a full-service bar featuring Michigan beer and wine.
