Laurie Michelle Caner Awarded 2016-2017 Akron Knight Arts Challenge Grant 

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Arts Challenge funds the best ideas for engaging and enriching Akron through the arts. The project will "celebrate Akron’s heritage by creating a vibrant and beautiful book and CD of original illustrations by Leandra Drumm and songs by Laurie Michelle Caner based on stories about the Ohio and Erie Canal." Stay tuned for Hey Mavis concerts and workshops based on this work, starting in late February, 2017. See article in Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Free Download! 

Now through the end of May, we are offering a free download of our new single, "Yes, the Gypsy Music".  All you have to do is sign-up for our mailing list (sign-up here)!  The song was inspired by the love affair of Clara Ward, the daughter of Michigan's first millionaire, and Rigo Jancsi, a gypsy violinist.

New Merch Available!!!! 

Well, now...she has done it again!  Just when we think our mighty Laurie Michelle Caner can't fit anything else into her schedule, she goes and teaches herself how to screenprint!!!  So, now we have some awesome "What I Did" merchandise available!  We have t-shirts, both new and upcycled, and we have kitchen towels (of course). We will have the new merch up soon on our store page.  If you can't wait until then, send us an email and we will see what Laurie is cooking up in her tiny little basement workshop for you!

"Hey Mavis has the qualities I love in a great band - originality, solid musicianship, amazing vocals and an openness to experimentation."

This crew could single handedly ignite a whole new folk music scare. Killer stuff!
