Last year I was introduced to the music of Mike Aiken and was immediately hooked. So I am delighted to host him on his fall tour. This singer, songwriter, guitarist, poet and sea captain is described musically as Americana, Country, Roots…with an Ocean View…think John Prine meets Jimmy Buffett.
“The audience hooped and hollered and stomped it’s feet! With his stories and songs, it was like an old friend singing on your back porch. Mike’s music gave an original edge that kept everyone entertained. “
– Mark McCreary, Ross Ragland Theater
Well-traveled Virginia troubadour and sea captain, Mike Aiken, may have been born in the wrong century. An inner sense of chivalry oozes from every story he tells and every song he sings. Aiken has drawn tales – and hope – from trail riders, aging rodeo champs, sea captains, Rastafarians and outlaws on the lamb to craft an evening of tunes that draws the threads of these independent spirits together. Mike will be joined on stage with his wife and musical partner, Sweet Amy D. You can expect to hear upbeat, rootsy grooves, from slide guitar to honky-tonk hooks, percussion and harmony vocals that take you to the heart of a summer jump-up.
