Ferndale is witnessing a redefinition of the word “library”as the Ferndale Area District Library continues to produce more fun and engaging programming, activities and performances, such as July 11th’s Summer Concert Series featuring renowned singer/songwriter Dan John Miller.
Miller is one of Michigan’s musical treasures celebrated nationally for his folk/Americana compositions and tenures in eclectic groups such as Blanche and Goober & The Peas. This veteran of the Detroit rock scene was an early collaborator of Jack White’s (in Two Star Tabernacle), and is also an actor (as seen in 2005’s Oscar winning biopic Walk The Line). Miller’s live appearances have become more rare over the years, so the July 11 concert, presented by the Friends of the Ferndale Library, is an exciting opportunity for local music fans to catch an exclusive set from one of the scene’s true originals.
July’s installment of FADL’s 2017 Summer Concert Series starts at 6:30pm on July 11th. Dan John Miller’s performance is a free/all ages event.
