Michael Braunfeld is, first and foremost, a storyteller. His songs capture the everyday triumphs and struggles of ordinary people. His characters – though trapped in the particular circumstances of their own lives – appeal to a universal audience. Michael has been garnering critical acclaim and industry recognition including a prestigious slot on the 2013 Emerging Artists Showcase at The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival – where he received honorable mentions in audience voting (one of the only solo performers to do so). In 2014, Michael was welcomed into the Writers’ Night Family at The Bluebird Cafe. And he was named as a finalist in the esteemed Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition in both 2016 and 2018. From sold out listening rooms to festivals, Michael has been delighting old fans and winning over new audiences at every stop.


As an artist, Michael is that rare triple threat. His dynamic guitar style, trading off between percussive strumming and intricate finger picked melodies, has been compared to that of John Fahey.  His powerful vocals have been likened to those of Bruce Springsteen. As a songwriter, Michael evokes the very best of Springsteen, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, John Prine and his hero, Bill Morrissey. Comparisons aside, Michael is a unique artist at the height of his craft. 25 years into his career, Michael is writing his best songs yet. And onstage, he is a commanding presence.


In 2011, Michael was invited to perform at the 50th annual Philadelphia Folk Festival. From there, the calls from his fans (and arm twisting from his peers) for him to return to the stage never stopped. In 2013, he made the leap. Three years, two EPs, two albums and a slew of shows, thousands of miles and countless songs later, Michael has come full circle.


We’re thrilled to host Michael and his band on our stage for the release of his new album, Drive. The Boneyard Hounds are: Tom Hampton on lap steel, mandolin, dobro, and guitar; Tommy Geddes on drums and percussion; Nate Gonzalez on keyboards and guitar; and Kyle Swartzwelder on bass.


Join the celebration and pick up your own autographed copy direct from Michael himself.
