Michael Beauchamp-Cohen is a Michigan-bred songwriter, musician, and performer best known for his decade-plus collaboration with Laurel Premo in the roots duo Red Tail Ring. In both RTR and as a solo artist, Beauchamp-Cohen writes lyrically dense, unconventional folk songs that explore personal subjects made universal through the process of their transmission.
Beauchamp-Cohen has performed over 1,000 shows at a variety of festivals and venues while traveling across three continents since his solo debut in 2008. Past performances include the Wheatland Music Festival (Michigan), Port Fairy Folk Festival (Australia), Haapavesi Folk (Finland), Bluegrass Jamboree (Germany), and Red Wing Roots (Virginia). He has shared stages with peers such as Joan Shelley and The Steel Wheels, and luminaries Joel Mabus and John McCutcheon.
