LIVE on Folk & Beyond with Aer Stephen
Thursday December 16, 2010, 6:00 PM
For almost 20 years, Michael Clem, has been and continues to be, a member of nationally touring, Virginia-based folk-rock act, Eddie from Ohio. For the past two years, he's been putting his musical roots down in Charlottesville, and some of the bands you may have seen him playing bass with are The Ellis Paul Band, Old Calf, and The Pollocks. This evening, Michael stops in to delve into the Eddie From Ohio story. We will be spinning tunes from the EFO library, and looking at the bands long time run. Eddie From Ohio takes the stage at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on Saturday, December 18, with another Folk & Beyond favorite, Ellis Paul, opening.
Born in Atlanta on January 6, 1966. Mike is the middle of three boys, with all the middle child hang ups. The family moved to Northern Virginia in 1968, and with the exception of the college years, Mike had been there ever since, until his move to Charlottesville two years ago. “Since 1991, I've been playing bass, guitar, harp, and singing and writing songs for the folk-rock quartet, Eddie from Ohio. We've played all but 13 states in the U.S., and have even dipped our toes in Canada & Mexico. We've made nine CDs and a gazillion t-shirts. I also have an amazing son, as well as a reliable Honda in need of a new left rear tail light. Are we done?”
