Event

Michael Troy/Bill MotteConcert (split bill)
Saturday, April 6, 2013
Michael Troy/Bill Motte Concert (split bill)
$16 Members, $18 Non-Members (General)

Michael Troy was born and raised in the rough-and-tumble mill town of Fall River, Mass. In many ways, his life reflects the lives of the hard-working common folk who populate this part of New England. Having spent parts of his own life as a mill worker, fisherman, laborer and carpenter, and most of his adult years as a husband and father, Michael has traveled many paths, and the experience and wisdom he's gleaned along the way echoes through his music.  A magical storyteller with a gift for melody, a deep rich voice, excellent finger-pickin' skills and the ability to compose outstanding stanzas of substance, Michael's plaintive ballads speak of the hills and mills of Fall River and of childhood dreams not quite forgotten in the adult quest to make an honest living. Michael has won many awards for his music, including the 2004 Boston Folk Festival Songwriter's Contest, the 2004 Founders Title Folk and Bluegrass Festival Songwriter's Contest, the 2007 New England Songwriting Contest and the 2010 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Contest.

Well known on the coffeehouse scene, singer-songwriter Bill Motte's songs reflect a life well lived, with his personal experiences and far-ranging travels deeply felt in many of his tunes.  Hailed by one of his fans during a performance as "the best singer-songwriter on the South Shore", Bill has shown himself to be a literate and astute observer of human interactions.  The wry commentary in his precisely chosen lyrics and engaging performance leaves listeners really feeling the emotions evoked in the stories he weaves in his songs. Skillfully accompanying himself on guitar, when Bill's song is sung, you feel as if you've known everyone who is part of his tale.  With Bill's passion for songwriting in a league of its own, there are few artists who can tell life's stories so vividly.
