Friday, March 8, 2013 – The Michaud Brothers

Born and raised in Idaho, brothers Stephen and Michael Michaud grew up in a musical family.  Their concert will include a variety of original and contemporary numbers sure to please the whole family.  In July Stephen’s original song “Your hands” placed sixth nationally in the Nashville Singer and Songwriters Competition. In the vocal portion of the competition Stephen ranked third nationwide.   Stephen and Michael can also be found on iTunes with their singles “Pray for Hope” and “Tonight (Lullaby for a savior).” We are thrilled to have the Michaud Brothers as part of our March concert series.
