Wednesday, July 2 /Power Center

Some musicians just can’t do enough. Take Andrew Bird, for example. This critically beloved folk star came up as a jazz violinist before lending his fiddling skills to the 90’s swing revivalist group The Squirrel Nut Zippers. As a solo artist, he blends rock, blues and jazz with his elastic voice and preternatural whistling ability, creating an inventive and atmospheric sound fitting nicely into today’s genre-bending music scene. Beyond his prolific career as a touring musician, he’s leveraged his musical talents into scoring films as well. Bird brings his eclectic and ever-changing style to the Power Center as part of Ann Arbor Summer Fest. 8pm. $35-45. 

121 Fletcher St. 734-647-3327.
