Michael Troy - BIOMichael Troy was born and raised in the rough-and-tumble mill town of Fall River, Mass. In many ways, his life reflects the lives of the hard-working common folk who populate this part of New England. Having spent parts of his own life as a mill worker, fisherman, laborer and carpenter, and most of his adult years as a husband and father, Michael has traveled many paths, and the experience and wisdom he's gleaned along the way echoes through his music.
A magical storyteller with a gift for melody, a deep rich voice, excellent finger-pickin' skills and the ability to compose outstanding stanzas of substance, Michael's plaintive ballads speak of the hills and mills of Fall River and of childhood dreams not quite forgotten in the adult quest to make an honest living.
Michael has won many awards for his music winning the 2004 Boston Folk Festival Songwriter’s Contest, the Founders Title Folk and Bluegrass Festival Songwriter's Contest also in 2004, the South Florida Folk Festival Songwriter's Contest in 2005, the 2006 Wildflower Folk Festival Songwriter's Contest, the 2007 New England Songwriting Contest and the 2010 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Contest. www.folkmichaeltroy.com
