About this Event

A veteran on the Folk circuit, Mike Agranoff will appear at the Watchung Arts Center on March 28th at 8PM. The concert will be followed by a dessert reception with the opportunity to meet the performer.

Mike Agranoff is a folk performer that steadfastly defies categorization, and yet amasses stalwart fans from folk aficionados of all categories. He draws his material from sources as diverse as traditional ballads and fiddle tunes, Tin Pan Alley, contemporaries in the Folk World, and his own witty pen. Although Mike does perform some original material, he considers himself more an astute singer-song finder, priding himself in discovering the hidden gems, unknown in the larger folk world. He delivers them with a skilled hand on guitar and English concertina with an almost telepathic transmittal of the essence of the song, and occasionally sly twinkle in the eye in anticipation of some of the most horrible parodies ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting audience. A signature feature of Mike’s performances is his inclusion of some heart-stopping spoken word pieces that rivet the listener to unforgettable stories.

"You will never think of Folk Music the same after you attend a Mike Agranoff concert. Quite possibly the most reverent irreverent musician on the planet, Mike is absolutely irrepressible as he turns that genre inside out and back again in the blink of a twinkling eye. His parodies are legendary for their groan factor and insightful brilliance, but Mike is just as apt to restore an ancient heartfelt tune to its original splendor with his artful and deft guitar work. Mike Agranoff has been described as a “jokester-folkster” but that is just a part of his appeal. His eclectic love of all things musical is impossible to conceal." Flying Cat Music
