AmyNesbitt-JoeT.jpg
Amy Nesbitt, Executive and Artistic Director of The Ann Arbor Summer Festival will join Linda Yohn to talk about the 2017 Summer Festival Mainstage Series.

Amy Nesbitt, Artistic and Executive Director of The Ann Arbor Summer Festival made her annual stop at the WEMU studio to discuss the 2017 Mainstage Series.  She and I reminisced about Diana Krall’s early career including the significant impact Ann Arbor had on her rise in popularity.  Amy filled us in on shows for the entire family and hipped us to a big party with Ira Glass, host of This American Life prior to his show.  The 2017 Ann Arbor Summer Festival Mainstage Series brings Ann Arbor favorites together with fresh surprises.

Linda Yohn simply cannot remember a day in her life that was not filled with music. Her early life was full of changes as the daughter of a well-respected cancer research scientist who moved his family about, but one thing was constant: the love of music instilled by her mother. So, when it seemed life was too hard to bear, young Linda would listen to her radio, play her guitar, dance her heart out and sing at the top of her lungs. So, it isn’t so strange that “older” Linda still does all those things!
