Michael Holt – Winter Music Series

February 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Michael Holt has toured North America and Europe twenty times and released ten albums of his music. He puts on a spontaneous, one-man variety show using multiple instruments, moods, and characters. He weaves covers of Debussy, Dylan, Dizzy Gillespie, and Fela Kuti in with Beatlesy pop songs on the guitar, original classical pieces on the piano, and Fellini-esque lounge music on the organ. His newest material is about the converging crises facing our world today, but he’s just as likely to put on a strange costume and sing a song that will make you laugh.
“Michael Holt writes an all-too-rare kind of music, in which sophistication is in the service of emotion. His personal, powerful songs are really smart, but you realize that only after you first experience them as intimate, direct, and deeply meaningful.” – David Garland, WNYC, America’s most-listened-to public radio station.
