Orlen & Gabriel

A singer songwriter with roots in the Boston music scene of the late sixties and early seventies, Michael Orlen was a frequent performer at legendary Boston venues including the Sword in the Stone and Turk’s Head. He performed alone and later as a member of folk pop duo “Orlen and Gabriel”, as well as the popular seventies acoustic rock trio “Home Free”. His songs are confident expressions of optimism with a dose of irony thrown in. He also draws on an extensive knowledge of twentieth century folk, blues, and ragtime music to choose songs that resonate in today’s world. He is joined tonight by his long time partner in life and song, Chris Orlen. She has performed in concert with Michael throughout New England and sang for several years with the cabaret group Give My Regards.
