Michael Margaret Pat & Kate is singer-songwriter Michael Smith's musical reminiscence of growing up with his three sisters. Originally presented as a musical by Chicago's Victory Gardens Theater in 1994, it won four Jeff awards - Chicago's equivalent of a Tony - for Best Original Music, Best Production, Best Actor In A Revue, and Best New Work. Michael's first solo recording since 1994, the album's touching portraits, moving songs, and musical eloquence, demonstrates why Sing Out! magazine says "Michael Smith stands out as one of the few undisputed geniuses among singer-songwriters."
A regular co-writer with Steve Goodman (who sang several of Michael's songs), Michael is best known for penning the folk classic "The Dutchman" (sung by Suzy Bogguss and Jerry Jeff Walker among others). His songs have also been recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Trout Fishing In America, David Allan Coe, and many, many others.
"Hearing the songs of Michael Smith in this day and age is like reading an anthology of short stories by Hemingway after decades of only comic books."
