Fall River native, Michael Troy, has written amazing songs about his home town, people who have touched him and life itself, in the way he knows best…through his ability to combine his music with storytelling. He would tell you he has lived many lives as a mill worker, fisherman, laborer and carpenter, however he has always come back to his first love, music.
Michael’s family invites you to join them to enjoy live performances by: Johnny Botelho, Durfee Trio (Gary Bigelow, Mary Zema & Izzy Desmaris), Gary Fish, Thatcher Harrison, Charlie Pike Bluegrass Band, The Flying Laureanno Brothers, Louis Leeman, Steven Pelland, MaryBeth Soares & Dave Pereira, Don White, and Chuck Williams.
All proceeds from the concert will go to the Michael Troy Memorial Music Foundation, Inc., a newly formed non-profit organization. The foundation’s pledge is to keep the music and memory of Michael Troy alive by establishing funding for the B.M.C. Durfee High School Music Department. The foundations mission is to “provide a safe and supportive place for our future musicians and songwriters, where they have access to instruments and performance equipment, as well as the technology used in today’s world of music.”
Please join us to celebrate the music of Michael Troy and the songs that will be with us for many generations to come.
