Michael Averill is an adventurous Canadian troubadour who delivers stories and songs of serendipity around the country by foot. Through well walked Roots, Folk, and Blues, Michael captivates his audiences and invites them to connect deeper within themselves and their communities.
“Michael has a pied piper quality to him. He is a community builder, scene creator, and movement organizer. He is a teacher and inspirational leader that has the ability to gather the arts community around him, and take them in directions they might not achieve on their own.” – Chris Brandt, Executive Director of Music Heals
The Kelowna, BC native’s album project, “I’d Rather Walk,” inspired by his late singer/songwriting father, Garry Averill, has led to Michael literally strolling through Canada. It is a tribute to his father (an avid walker), and an initiative to encourage conversation around the country regarding life, loss, and wellness.
