Words Melody Rhythm

Michael Kirkpatrick is best known as Telluride Troubadour, and ringleader of Holler!ween--a Northern Colorado music festival in its 20th year.  The Singer-Songwriter/Mandolin player’s sonic affair with music has brought his rich baritone into Folk clubs, Rock’n’Roll venues, Bluegrass Festivals and even The Santa Fe Opera.  For 20 years, Michael toured extensively as a Soloist and a member of The Holler!,The Good Time Travelers and The Littlest Birds.
 
His blitz as a road warrior came to a halt in July of 2019 when a failed landing on stage at Northwest String Summit in Oregon blew out his left knee.  After canceling 5 months of gigs, enjoying surgery, physical therapy, making secret plans and writing songs, Michael was ready to return to the road in March of 2020...and then COVID hit.  Now, after a 2 years hibernation, Michael is back on the road playing his songs and assembling “a really cool band called Violet Pilot” and “working on a new bio”.
