Grace Lutheran hosting ‘Lost and Found’ farewell concert

Share this:

Grace Lutheran Church is hosting a Christian concert featuring the group “Lost and Found” on Sept. 13, 2015, at 6 p.m. The concert will be held at Grace Lutheran, 312 Prospect St. in Howell. There is no charge for the concert, but free will offerings will be accepted. All funds raised will benefit the youth group at Grace Lutheran.

The concert at Grace Lutheran is part of the farewell tour for “Lost and Found” and is their last stop in Michigan. Earlier this year, “Lost and Found” performed at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America Youth Gathering, which brought more than 30,000 Lutheran youth to Detroit for a five-day-long spiritual event.

“Lost and Found” is Michael Bridges and George Baum, friends since high school who have traveled around the world performing concerts of their original music and making friends in the process. Their music is the kind of thing that often prompts reactions like, “Well, I have never heard anything like that before.” Michael and George admit it is a unique sound. Yet, just as they started their musical tours by riding bicycles coast to coast and performing on borrowed instruments wherever they were welcomed, they continue to encourage all who hear them to “do what you can with what you have for the glory of God,” as they make their own sound with just two instruments and their voices.

Their concerts are interactive, driven by the audience. Each show is different–always spontaneous, improvisational and musical, and often poignant, occasionally funny. Some have said their music is “acoustic thrash.” Some have called it “heavy mental” owing to all the lyrical content in each three-minute song. And some have simply said, “Well, at least it’s organic.” However you choose to characterize the sound, if you see these guys play, you’ll find that all are welcome, that strangers become friends at the concerts, and that the music of faith is fun.
