Black Swamp Conservancy will wrap up its summer outdoor concert series with the Warren & Flick Duo on Sunday, Oct. 2 at its Dr. Robert L. Nehls Memorial Nature Preserve, 4400 East Muggy Rd. in Port Clinton on Catawba Island.
The concert begins at 2:30 p.m., and the highly acclaimed regional two-person ensemble of Warren & Flick uses both original material and arranged standards from many genres. The ensemble finds new depth in the simplicity of a duo, with Jacob Warren playing double bass while Grant Flick plays violin, tenor guitar and nyckelharpa.
Tickets are $20. Children 10 years old and under are free with an adult ticket purchase. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair and cooler to enjoy live music and Lake Erie’s scenic West Harbor. It is a rain or shine event.

Black Swamp Conservancy is a land trust dedicated to protecting natural habitats and family farms, now and for future generations, through land conservation agreements. The Conservancy does this to preserve the rural heritage, unique natural habitats, and streams of northwest Ohio.
Founded in 1993, the organization permanently protects more than 21,000 acres of woods, wetlands, and family farms in northwest Ohio.
By protecting the region’s valuable land and water resources, the Conservancy supports healthy communities with strong, sustainable economies including agriculture and ecotourism.
In addition to performing and recording, Warren & Flick also strive to share their knowledge and often lead workshops and clinics for young musicians who are interested in making their own music.
“Through the wide spectrum of acoustic music, our goal is to inspire and educate each individual we serve to personally connect to music. Our combined experience in classical, bluegrass, jazz, and original/improvised music is something not typically offered in the standard curriculum found at most K-12 schools,” says the duo. “Because these styles, among others, give each student the chance to make their own music, valuable lessons in creativity, listening, and leadership are achieved. By learning music passed down and played by ear, students learn to associate with the tradition of acoustic music while also finding its inherent freedom which allows them to discover and explore their own inner musicianship.”
Both Warren and Flick are graduates of University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
