MIKE T. KERR
Mike Kerr is a wild flatpicker and ambitious country songwriter of Canadian heritage and American citizenship. During his time at Berklee College of Music in Boston and in over 10 years of performing, he's lived his life through many historical and contemporary musical styles. Always curious to dig up not only a song's history, but the shape of the world at the time, Mike plays passionately and openly while interpreting the great guitar players of the past. A Danny Gatton lick or Django Reinhardt tune is never far from his fingertips.
Born in Michigan and raised in Ontario, Quebec and Virginia, it's hard to pinpoint exactly where Mike is from. He hangs his hat at any given time in Halifax, Nashville, Toronto, or in whichever touring vehicle he's calling home.
In Halifax, Mike fronts The Franklin Brewery Boys, a bluegrass and hot swing ensemble nominated as Halifax's "Best Country Band" in The Coast in 2017. He has appeared on award winning albums by Nova Scotia's Ryan Cook, Thomas Stajcer, and Willie Stratton. Mike has performed at such NS festivals as Deep Roots Music Festival, Full Circle, Folk Harbour Festival, and In the Dead of Winter. In 2018 Mike was nominated by Music Nova Scotia as Musician of the year,
In Nashville, Mike performs originals and covers at local venues, while moonlighting on the road as a bass player for local stoner rock / metal band Howling Giant.
In Toronto, at venues such as The Cameron House and The Local, and across North America, he can be found playing original country music or lending his guitar skills to Canadian folk singers such as Corin Raymond, Dana Sipos, Campbell Woods, and more. Around Ontario Mike has toured with William Prince, and most recently Irish Mythen.
