Michael Reno Harrell is an award winning songwriter, storyteller, published author and all around great entertainer. His songs have been described as “Appalachian grit and wit”, but his self pinned material resonates far beyond his Southern roots. Because of his exceptional knack for description, fans have described his songs as “little movies”.
His combination of music and storytelling are based in experience, sometimes downright funny, sometimes just plain scary, maybe even with a message worth taking away, but always mesmerizing and entertaining.
One could compare Michael’s performances to his granddaddy’s pocket knife: well warn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point. His brand of entertainment appeals to a very diverse audience. Michael’s natural knack for storytelling, in print, song and spoken word has earned him praise from not only the music community but from the literary and storytelling worlds as well, having had the honor of being a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival and to be Teller In Residence at the International Storytelling Center, as well as performing at major music events like MerleFest and the Walnut Valley Festival. Don’t miss the chance to experience what those faithful fans keep returning again and again to enjoy.
