For eleven years, Northcoast Americana band Hey Mavis has been weaving a musical tapestry of heartfelt vocals, honest songwriting, blazing instrumental solos, and an undeniable onstage musical chemistry. Banjoist/songwriter Laurie Michelle Caner and violinist/fiddler Eddie Caner formed Hey Mavis while serving as artists-in-residence in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Producer Don Dixon (REM/Smithereens/Red Clay Ramblers) “discovered” the group on a Michael Stanley Christmas compilation CD and went on to produce their first two albums, both of which hit the top 10 on the national Folk DJ-L radio charts and amassed favorable reviews across the globe. Hey Mavis has appeared on NPR’s Mountain Stage, NPR’s Whad’ya Know?, IdeaStream’s Applause, PBS’s Songs from the Center, and was hand-picked by Melissa Etheridge to be one of the headliners for her 2018 music cruise. The group has performed standing-room-only shows at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival as well as fourteen consecutive sell-out concerts in their hometown of Akron Ohio.
