Mike Agranoff is well known in our community as a founding member of the Folk Project since its creation in 1977. Chairman of the Troubadour Acoustic Concert Series since its inception, he is celebrated for his humor, instrumental skills, wide ranging repertoire, and especially for his storytelling. To celebrate the recent release of his book of recitations (stories in rhyme), Jake, the Captain, and Other Heroes, this concert will be all storytelling, consisting primarily of these recitations. They range from adventure fiction to tongue-in-cheek history to science fiction. His best-known example is The Ballad of Jake and 10-Ton Molly. Interspersed will be other stories of noteworthy personal experience. Also appearing as a special guest on the show will be the man who first introduced Mike to the concept of recitation as an art form, Tony Barrand (of Roberts & Barrand).
