Banjo-Jim Foerch picked up his first banjo in 1965 and hasn’t put it down since. As a founding member of the regional touring band Blue Water Ramblers Banjo-Jim has been pickin’ and singin’ all over the Midwest professionally since 1973. He says writing and singing songs of Michigan, America and our lives to all the people we meet on tour is the best thing he’s ever done. “Everyone I ever met around the Midwest is proud of our home state and our country. Our songs express that pride the best way we know how- by getting us all singing together!” When he isn’t picking he teaches astronomy at the Chaffee Planetarium in Grand Rapids and at the Veen Observatory in Lowell TWP. Ask for a sky tour on clear nights.
