Singer. Songwriter. Folk and Rock musician. 2014 Telluride Troubadour Competition winner. Michael Kirkpatrick is a modern day minstrel. Performing over 150 dates a year, Michael sings about nature, dreams and sensuality. The original music comes to you straight from Michael's soul--unfiltered, passionate and true. Michael was recently named "Best Male Singer Songwriter" by the Fort Collins Musicians Association Peer Awards two years in a row, and his latest release "Key To My Cage" was awarded "Best Colorado Folk/Singer-Songwriter Album of 2013" by The Colorado Sound Fan Poll. His voice has been described as “deep, earnest, swoony and powerful”. Original Americana, Rock and Folk combine with Michael’s rich bass voice to define his timeless sound—imagine a Cat Stevens-Darrell Scott-David Bowie hybrid. Aside from performing as a solo artist, you can catch Michael on stage with his Folkadelic Rock band The Holler!
