Mike Agranoff is one of those folk performers 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. He delivers it with a skilled hand on guitar, piano, and concertina, 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 are his inclusion of some heart-stopping spoken word pieces that rivet the listener to unforgettable stories. Check him out at www.mikeagranoff.com.
The Lords of Liechtenstein is a contemporary folk band based in New York City. They started as a duo project of two brothers, Dan and Noah Rauchwerk, and has since grown into a full five-piece band, adding guitarist Ned Steves, bassist Matt Fernicola, and drummer Owen Flanagan. The Lords often draw comparisons to The Everly Brothers for their harmonic sensibilities and to The Smothers Brothers for their mischievous onstage interactions. They write purposeful lyrics to tell musical stories that fluctuate between heart-wrenchingly sad and outlandishly ridiculous topics. The Lords have opened for musical stalwarts such as Brett Dennen, Elephant Revival, and Buckwheat Zydeco, and have been featured on NPR’s syndicated Mountain Stage program.

Other upcoming concerts include Christie Lenee on September 27 and Moors and McCumber on October 25.
