Ishpeming – 08/04/2011 – Music listeners visiting the Ol’ Ish location across from Congress Pizza enjoyed the dynamic folk song performance from Jeff Krebs and John Beck as part of the Thursday Night Summer Concert Series.
John Beck, a high school teacher in Escanaba, first met John as a student of his in chorus class, later collaborating together musically after Kreb’s graduation. Later becoming in-laws, their musical bonding evolved during the years of writing and playing music during time spent at the family camp, mutually known as the KLM Camp Band. A selection of their camp songs eventually were released on MP3.com, back in the day, to share their special moments of creativity, displaying their own style of Americana folk-style, bluegrass and old time blues
John’s son, Jordan, sang with the duo on an upcoming song to be featured in Kreb’s latest recording called, “Things That Roar”, to be released on September 11th. This collection featured several area artists who helped Jeff out on this project, including , John and Jordan Beck, Jeff’s two young kids, Kerry Yost, Dave Zeigner, Aaron Kippola, Chris Potter, Jake Khulman, Doug & Jamie Kitchel, Jonathan Rudman.
