CD Release Party!

I'll be playing stripped-down acoustic versions of the songs form my new album, and some older songs and a few cover songs on December 10, 8-10pm at The Hearing Room, 119 Chelmsford Street, Lowell, MA. Hope to see you there! http://www.hearingroom.net/new-events/2016/12/10/mike-birch-cd-release-party

New album recording is done!

My 4th album will be released by this coming Christmas!. 15 songs now recorded, final studio production work continues, and I'll be starting to work on the cover art soon, too. Looks for more news on this album soon!

Looking for a band!

Now that the annual Beatles benefit show is history (and what fun it was!) I've resumed my search for a mostly-acoustic band (duo/trio?) that is looking for one more player/singer to expand their sound. Besides guitar (6 string, 12 string), I play uke, Merlin (you'll have to search!), bass and keyboards and can quickly learn new songs or suggest songs from my 300+ cover song list. Looking to gig 2-6 times per month.

Annual 'All You Need Is Love' benefit show

Practice has gotten underway for the Scrambled Eggs' set which is scheduled to close out the big show at the Me & Thee in May. The will be our 6th year doing this fun show. I'm also hoping to provide some accompaniment for Jody Moore, a good friend and excellent rock and roll singer! Put May 21 on your calendar!

CD Release Party

To celebrate the release of my new CD, 'Empty Pages and Lost Songs', I will be doing a feature set at the Vinal American Legion in North Chelmsford, MA on January 21, starting about 8:30. Come on by and buy a CD! This is an open mic/jam night, so if you want to play, come early for sign up as there's always a good turnout.
