Green Wood Coffee House Series is not a First United Methodist Church of Ann Arbor program, but is an independent/private venture. Communications from GWCH do not necessarily reflect the views of FUMC of Ann Arbor or its leadership.
We want to keep our artists, volunteers, and audience safe! Masking is currently optional at all events. We may update masking protocol when appropriate.
Lee Murdock has uncovered a boundless body of music and stories in the Great Lakes. There is an amazing timelessness in this music. Great Lakes songs are made of hard work, hard living, ships that go down and ships that come in. The music is grounded in the work song tradition from the rugged days of lumberjacks and wooden sailing schooners. Murdock comes alongside with ballads of contemporary commerce and revelry in the grand folk style. Lee's fans have discovered a sweetwater treasure in his songs about the Great Lakes, finding drama and inspiration in the lives of sailors and fishermen, lighthouse keepers, ghosts, shipwrecks, outlaws and everyday heroes. With a deeper understanding of the folk process, Lee combines historical research and contemporary insights to make folk music for the modern era. His work is a documentary and also an anthem to the people who live, work, learn and play along the shores of the Great Lakes today.
Since 1980, Lee has released eighteen albums and three books with accompanying CDs. His latest CD release is Here We'll Stand.
