Timothy Monger

The Ark 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor

Timothy Monger is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist living in Ypsilanti, Michigan. His poetic and detailed reflections play out in songs that range from lush baroque pop to pastoral folk and harmony-driven indie rock. A co-founder of cult classic Ann Arbor band Great Lakes Myth Society, he has been a creative force in the regional music scene for over two decades. This concert will celebrate the release of his self-titled fourth solo album. A folk-pop opus full of melodic songwriting and inventive arrangements, Monger's new collection champions eccentric characters, offbeat subjects, and evocative locales. From Hebridean Scotland to rural Wisconsin and the disparate shorelines of his own home state, it is an album that celebrates language, literature, and an abiding love of the arcane. He will be performing with his band Timothy Monger State Park.

Opener: Matt Jones
