Sweetly melodic, melancholy, soulful. "Poulopoulos feels his way through each song like one might find his way through the dark slowly and carefully. That attention to detail is what defines and ultimately shines" (Nippertown). Capital District singer-songwriter Mike Poulopoulos's songs are honest and eloquent.
". . . a songwriter with a poet's nerve and a sharp eye for the telling detail. . . like the distilled dream of a man alone at a roadside tavern: stories of recollection, regret, and warmth." (Dan Johnson) His gentle, storytelling lyrical style is a natural fit for the folk stage, inspired by musicians such as John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, and Chris Smither. Tonight he is celebrating the release of a new album, his first since the critically acclaimed Greenhorn (2011).
Raised in Vermont and now based in NYC, opener Caitlin Canty contributes her pure, nuanced singing to several bands (Down Like Silver, Darlingside) in addition to maintaining an active tour schedule of her own. Her latest work is folk roots with a Western, alt-country flavor.
