About Hey Mavis
Hey Mavis’ latest project, Silver Ribbon Dream—People & Stories of the Ohio & Erie Canal, is a book/CD of original songs and illustrations funded by John S. and James L. Knight Foundation in collaboration with nationally-acclaimed artist Leandra Drumm. Released in October, 2018, reviews have ranged from “unconventionally beautiful” to “startlingly original.” A traveling gallery exhibit accompanied by Hey Mavis performances is currently being scheduled in cities throughout the Midwest for the 2018-2019 season, including appearances with the Muncie Symphony and the Tuscarawas Philharmonic.
Hey Mavis has appeared on NPR’s Mountain Stage, NPR’s Whad’ya Know?, and PBS’s Songs from the Center. The group has performed standing-room-only shows at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival as well as nine consecutive sell-out concerts in their hometown of Akron, Ohio. In 2017, Melissa Etheridge saw Hey Mavis perform at a benefit concert and recruited the group to perform on her 2018 music cruise. Learn more at HeyMavis.com.
