About Chuck Mitchell
I am a hubert humphrey democrat sensitive new age guy on Medicare and Social Security.
I sing, recite poetry and bits of this and that, and play guitar.
I write some of what I perform and steal the rest. My promo says: Chuck Mitchell started singing in Detroit folk clubs and saloons back in the 1960’s. In Toronto, on his first out of town gig, he met a boney blonde Canadian songwriter named Joni Anderson. They married, and as a duo Chuck and Joni Mitchell played the coffeehouse circuit and gin rummy until she was 48,760 points ahead, and they divorced. In his one man show, Mitchell plays guitar and sings cabaret songs, animal songs, story songs, and Mitchell songs. He weaves poetry by Carl Sandburg and others into his shows. He has appeared on ‘A Prairie Home Companion’ (thrice). His acting credits include ‘The World of Carl Sandburg’ (in the USA and the UK), Harold Hill in ‘The Music Man’, Woody in ‘Woody Guthrie’s American Song’, and Stephen Foster in ‘Mr. Foster & Mr. Twain’. His songs are on iTunes and CDBaby. On YouTube, enter “Chuck Mitchell Sings”. A Renaissance Man? Well, he’s old enough.
