With his expressive tenor voice, smooth, expressive delivery and his experience as a performer. Mel stands out from the pack... ”

Mel Green / Singer-Songwriter

Available for Features, Gigs, House Concerts & Folk Festivals. 
During the late 60s in South Africa, Mel often topped the bill at South African coffeehouses and appeared at Folk Festivals. He emigrated to the USA in 1970, and he has been active in the New York ('70-'71) and Boston folk scenes (since 1972, with a few breaks when marriage, family and life intervened). 
Mel's smooth tenor singing voice has been compared to Glen Campbell, John Denver and James Taylor, and his unassuming performing style is pleasant, moving and enjoyable.
    He was signed to Columbia (South Africa) in the 60s as a solo artist before he emigrated.  His top-of-the-heap folk trio, Mel, Mel & Julian recorded 3 innovative albums for Columbia South Africa.
   They were a hit for 4 years as a sold-out folk-comedy group at venues all over South Africa in the top echelon of folk singers at the premier coffeehouses and folk festivals.
