Subject: Obit: Michael Meldrum of Buffalo
From: Amos
Date: 07 May 11 - 01:21 PM

Michael G. Meldrum, the folk singer who hosted Buffalo's longest-running open mic night and fostered singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco during her formative years, died Thursday in the hospice unit of Buffalo General Hospital from liver disease. He was 60.

Mr. Meldrum was a central figure in the city's folk music scene for more than three decades, encouraging young artists in his Monday night sessions in Nietzsche's on Allen Street and bringing notable out-of-towners like Suzanne Vega, Michele Shocked and Townes Van Zandt to local audiences through his Buffalo Song Project.

Mr. Meldrum, who was born Feb. 15, 1951, in Buffalo, was a frequent winner of Buffalo Music Awards and was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
