Our dear friend Michael McNevin returns for an encore performance Live at the A-Frame on Saturday, October 19th. Michael's songs read like short stories, full of heart, humor, and a keen eye for detail. His accomplished guitar work and seasoned vocals underscore the characters and places he comes across in his travels.
Michael McNevin is a winner of the Kerrville New-Folk award, Performing Songwriter Magazine “DIY Artist Of The Year”, and 7-time grand finals "Song Of The Year" winner for West Coast Songwriters. He's also been a 3rd place finalist at both the Rocky Mountain Folks and Telluride Troubadour Competitions in Colorado, and was nominated Artist Of The Year by the National Academy of Songwriters.
Growing up in the the San Francisco Bay east hills area train town of Niles, Michael McNevin started out playing underage in East Bay bars, busked the streets and subways of New York, and has since logged 25 years on the American songwriter circuit. He has shared stages with Johnny Cash & The Carter Family, Donovan, Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens, Iris Dement, Greg Brown, Christine Lavin, Robert Earl Keen, Loudon Wainwright, Cheryl Wheeler, John Gorka and many others. Michael has been a main-stager at renowned festivals including Strawberry, High Sierra, Kerrville, Redwood Ramble, American River, Canada’s SummerFolk and the Philadelphia Folk Fest. He tours as a solo act in the US and Europe, and occasionally gets a band together as McNevin & The Spokes. In addition, Michael is an Etch-A-Sketch artist of some renown, delighting and dumbfounding audiences. Seriously: he illustrates his songs on the little red toy. Michael has been a guest on CBS "Evening Magazine", plus segments on NBC, ABC, and dozens of cable music shows. When he's not on the road, Michael owns and operates the Mudpuddle Shop, a former barber shop in downtown Niles. Now in its 14th year, the Mudpuddle Shop is a 15'x15' creative hive for showcases, workshops, song swaps and jams. His Etch-A-Sketch drawings hang on the walls, waiting for an earthquake.
Don’t miss this wonderful evening of story and song with Michael McNevin Live at the A-Frame, Saturday, October 19th.
