At 7 pm on Wednesday, June 30, the progressive folk band with Celtic roots The Founding will give a free performance in the Plainwell Bandshell, where thePlainwell Music Society hosts a concert series all summer. Joel Myers, who plays mandolin and fiddle and composes most of the original songs, tells Cara Lieurance that the show will feature the full original lineup and will focus on music from their debut album, Form. He also describes how the pandemic affected the members of the band and the group as a whole. Some learned new instruments, some became new parents, and enough music was written for a new album to be recorded in the next year.

Cara Lieurance is the local host of NPR's All Things Considered on 1021 WMUK and covers local arts & culture on Let's Hear It on 89.9 Classical WMUK weekday mornings at 10 - 11 am.
