“You will never think of Folk Music the same after you attend a Mike Agranoff concert…" - Flying Cat Music, NY
is many things, almost* none of them dull.
As a folk singer, he's renowned for his ability to find wonderful songs from diverse and sometimes obscure sources. As a songwriter, he’s far from prolific, yet his occasional compositions are finely wrought. He plays a superb fingerstyle guitar on ancient harp tunes, Tin Pan Alley numbers and atmospheric modern songs. His concertina arrangements of music from Bach to the Berrymans may be haunting, complex, or exciting, but above all, they’re musical. As a storyteller, he delivers riveting recitations that are poetic, funny and touching. He also indulges in groan-inducing puns and hilarious parody songs. (Well, nobody’s perfect!)
Whatever else he does, Mike puts the lie to the notion that folk music is boring. He has a keen ear for the best of the best, and he puts his unique stamp on everything he plays. He makes us laugh, cry and think, all the while entertaining us long into any evening of music. New and old audiences will find lots to enjoy in the work of this highly individual artist.
* Mike is a retired mechanical engineer. That could be considered dull - yet his engineering career inspired one of his signature stories!
