Normally, it’s never a good idea to make grammatical errors, but seeing the “Dangling Participles” band live certainly is. A four-piece outfit from right here in Lansing, they’re an Americana group that ventures into folk, Latin jazz and blues.

Austin Kaufmann is lead guitarist, Tim Patterson joins on bass, Tamiko Rothhorn is lead singer, cornet and ukulele player and Larry Zwier helps round out the sound with rhythm guitar.

The band will also be part of this Sunday's Songs for Sustainability festival, in case you miss this performance.
