Mel Green has “A terrific musical sense, an evocative sound, and a classic folk voice!” (Nick Noble,WICNFM, Worcester,MA), "Mel writes songs that draw in his audiences, and his beautiful voice draws his listeners in and encourages audience participation” (Ellen Schmidt,musician) and "Thanks for singing for us
and making us welcome. You have a great voice." (Phil Everly, during the ‘67 Everly Brother’s South African tour.) "A unique neo-classical / folk / baroque style..." Mac McLanahan,Rose garden Coffeehouse. "Mel’s voice is like fine, china. Far-reaching life experiences have illuminated his lyricism, as he sprinkles his words and narrative with humor and humility." (Angela Masciale,King Hooper Cafe).
He went solo in 1967, his wonderful tenor voice soaring and captivating his audiences, his entertaining ways endearing himself to his audiences. He emigrated to the USA in 1970, stopping along the way to play at the Cecil Sharpe House (English Folk Song Society) in London... and then in Greenwich Village coffeehouses likeThe Gaslight and Gerde's Folk City, and doing cabaret in the Poconos, before settling in Cambridge in 1972 where
he played at Club Passim (formerly Club 47) after being invited by Bob Donlin
to open for Sandy Bull and for great Rosalie Sorrels.
During the 70s, despite encouragement from the late Bob Donlin of Club
Passim, he chose marriage and family which kept him away from the professional music scene.He continued playing and honing his music
and his songwriting skills, and has been active on the Boston acoustic music
scene over the last decade. The recent release of his new CD has prompted his resurgence on the scene.
