An Afternoon with Singer-Songfinder Mike Agranoff

Sunday November 23, 2014: 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

What he does as a folk musician is a rather difficult question to answer. Mike combs the canon of contemporary and traditional songs for little-known gems, puts his unique stamp on them, and brings them to the stage. Whatever else he does, Mike puts a lie to the notion that folk music is boring. His repertoire is vast and varied. Mike is not only a collector of songs and a master at arranging them, but he also has a keen ear for the best of the best. If you're sick of the endless stream of singer songwriters who write for the market, you will find Mike to be a refreshing alternative. He makes us laugh, cry and think, all the while entertaining us long into any evening of music.
