A Michigan world traveler and a witness

Description

Michigan-born Navy veteran Drew Nelson is a storytelling songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. A fly fisherman and world traveler, he writes as a witness to the lives and journeys of those he has met along the way, mixing Americana and roots-rock with traditional folk styles. Drew describes himself as "a God-fearing feeder of birds." This Grand Rapids native lists his influences as "Greg Brown, Peter Mulvey, Tom Waits, Patty Griffin, Lyle Lovett, Richard Shindell, Andrew Calhoun, Kat Eggleston, John Gorka, Jan Krist, Ralston Bowles, U2, Bruce Cockburn, and, well . . . Dylan, Dylan, Dylan." He's opened for John Gorka, a big fan, at The Ark, and has toured with Melissa Etheridge and Edwin McCain. 

Ark Family Room shows are free and streamed to The Ark’s Facebook page. Donations to the “virtual tip jar” during shows support both The Ark and the participating artists.
