Live Music in the Orchard: Michael Clem
Live Music in the Orchard: Michael Clem

Come grab a glass of cider and Join us in the Orchard room For the Magical, the magnificent, miraculous Michael Clem.

local singer-songwriter Michael Clem has managed to continue his life as a full-time musician for several decades.  For 31 years, Clem has been playing bass, singing and writing songs for the national touring act he co-founded.

“A songwriter, a guitarist and observational comedian… Think Blink-182 with words by Todd Snider and you get an idea of what Clem does within the confines of folk-rock.”
The Washington Post

“A multi-dimensional performer, Michael Clem’s songs touch universal human conditions that expose our doubts without ever being preachy. His dry and sly wit and clever arrangements soothe the soul but include a social commentary bite that encourages us not to take our lives too seriously.”
-Aer Stephen
