“Gathering Time has harmonies that can charm the birds out of the trees, strong original songs, and a savvy repertoire of cover songs, ranging from traditional folk to classic rock.” John Platt, WFUV-NY
Take one-part Crosby, Stills and Nash; a dollop of Peter, Paul and Mary; and a few morsels of The Byrds, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor, and you get Gathering Time – a head-turning folk-rock harmony trio described recently as “getting a whole beehive-full of buzz” on the Northeast regional folk scene.
The trio has recently performed with Kim & Reggie Harris, Livingston Taylor, Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, Mad Agnes, Christine Lavin, Tom Chapin, Sloan Wainwright, Joe Jencks and Mike Agranoff, to name just a few, at venues up and down the U. S. east coast.
“Gathering Time is right up there with the ones we all know – they are the next generation of great Trios with meaningful music performed in awesome harmony.” Bill Hahn, WFDU
“Gathering Time … has perfected two separate but related art forms: three part harmony and having a ball on stage! When they harmonize, some sort of fundamental, cosmic concordance occurs that makes you very happy that you have ears.” MaineFolkMusic.com
“Mike Agranoff has great songs and riveting stories—he is a multi-instrumentalist and funny as hell!”
Mike Agranoff’s material encompasses traditional ballads and tunes to Tin Pan Alley and spoken pieces, all delivered with skillful guitar and concertina accompaniment, often a sly twinkle in the eye, and always a telepathic transmittal of the essence of each song.
“You wil never think of folk music the same after you attend a Mike Agranoff concert. Quite possibly the most reverent irreverent musician on the planet, Mike is absolutely irrepressible as he turns that genre inside out and back again. His parodies are legendary for their groan factor and insightful brillance. But Mike is just as apt to restore an ancient tune to its original splendor with his artful and deft guitar. Mike Agranoff has been described as a ‘jokester-folkster’ but that is just part of his appeal. His eclectic love of all things musical is impossible to conceal.” Tommy Rinaldo, Flying Cat Music, Phonecia, NY
“Mike is a one-of-a-kind folk impresario! His live show bounced us from traditional ballads to parodies to Joplin to a Bach violin concerto played on a concertina.An evening we won’t soon forget.” Folk Music Society of Huntington, NY
