JOHN BALDWIN — CAST MEMBER REUNITES WITH LOST BROTHERS IN MUSKEGON, MI ON OCT. 2
September 28, 2016
SEPT. 28, 2016, RICHMOND, VA — When the new hit Irish dance and rock show, ROCKIN’ ROAD TO DUBLIN, arrives in Muskegon, MI on Oct. 2, cast member / bass guitarist JOHN BALDWIN will be celebrating a homecoming.
Adopted at birth, Baldwin, now 45, found his biological family in 2011 on ancentry.com, and since has met his older brother and several cousins. This fall, when ROCKIN ROAD TO DUBLIN kicked off the first leg of its 60-city tour, the popular musician visited his birth mother’s grave on Sept. 25 in Evansville, IN.
When he arrives on Sunday in Muskegon, he’ll meet for the first time his two younger brothers — Porter Ward and Joe Ward, Jr. — who both live in Battle Creek.
“I am beyond thrilled about the opportunity that this tour gives me to meet my biological family members,” says Baldwin, who has toured professionally with the Celtic rock band The American Rogues, and has been the opening act for Steely Dan and Michael McDonald, and recorded with Will Lee and Tommy Newsom.
“I have been talking on the phone with Porter and Joe, and I am so excited to finally meet them, and at last be a big brother,” shares Baldwin, who during the tour is studying online for a master’s degree in biblical studies from the Virginia Beach Theological Seminary. “Touring with ROCKIN’ ROAD TO DUBLIN means so much to me, and adding these important meetings to the trip makes it even more special and intense. I wouldn’t miss this experience for anything.”
