WIUM Tristates Public Radio

Celebration Concert Series

Tri States Public Radio has a 25 year history of bringing great concerts to the area.

If you are a regular attendee, or you've never joined us for a concert, you will love the upcoming shows featuring the best touring folk, Americana, singer-songwriter and independent music acts.

We are continuing to take the show on the road to venues around the region.  While most of the concerts will be in the Vallillo/Holtz Performance Studio in our offices in Macomb, we will continue branching out to other venues around the tri-state area.

Tickets may be ordered online by clicking the links provided in the show descriptions below, or call 800-895-2912 between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm Monday-Friday to order your tickets. Tickets are $10 for Tri States Public Radio members; $15 for non-members. *All shows begin at 7:00pm, unless otherwise noted.*


Everyone is encouraged to bring along a non-perishable food Item or personal care item for the local food pantry. For directions to our offices in Macomb, click here.

Born Charles Scott Mitchell in New York City, he grew up in farm country north of Detroit. He thought of becoming a forest ranger like Aldo Leopold. Instead, he graduated from college with a degree in English and drama. After a brief time pursuing but not capturing an acting career in New York, Mitchell was drafted into the US Army, where he learned to drive a tank and use an assortment of weapons. Then he spent a peaceful year in Korea as a reporter for Stars & Stripes and as a hoofer in musical comedy reviews, entertaining the troops.


Red Tail Ring is the musical brainchild of two old-time-minded Michiganders – Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. The collaboration blends the loving attention of revivalist fervor with the playful creativity of starting from scratch. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their many original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, jawharp, and plain-old foot stomping. “We love pushing the boundaries of what a traditional song can be,” says Beauchamp.
