GLFF's "Chicken Man!"

Have you seen this man? Thomas Seymour, the Chicken Man, has been an outstanding volunteer with our GLFF Bucket Brigade for 10 years now! He is a constant presence out on the streets and has collected as much as $5,000 throughout the festival weekend.

Thanks to Tom for his extraordinary commitment to the MSU Museum and the Great Lakes Folk Festival. The cash we collect helps maintain the high quality of programs at GLFF helps us finish the year strong. If you see him, be sure and say thanks and drop a couple bucks in the bucket!
