Rod MacDonald was born in Connecticut and rose to prominence in NYC’s Greenwich Village in the 1980s, where he was a frequent headlining artist in clubs and co-founded the Greenwich Villlage Folk Festival. With 11 cds and 150 performances annually throughout North America and Europe, he continues to dazzle audiences with his passionate singing and thought-provoking writing. His songs have been recorded by Shawn Colvin, Jonathan Edwards, Dave Van Ronk, Happy Traum, Bok-Trickett-Muir, Four Bitchin’ Babes, Garnet Rogers and numerous other singers. His latest CD, Later That Night, reached #3 nationally on the Roots Music Folk charts in February 2015, with the song “Raven” at #1.
In December 2014 MacDonald published his first novel, The Open Mike, “a music-driven novel for the ages and a great extension of MacDonald’s already prolific creative output.” ~ Jonathan Widran, Music Connection Magazine.
Now living in south Florida, he’s been named one of “Ten Greatest South Florida Folksingers Of All Time” by New Times, and Fort Lauderdale’s Labyrinth Café—where MacDonald appears in concert each year—notes “his personal commitment to communicating events that have affected and shaped our world’s societies….Rod’s songs will stay in your heart and mind long after the music has ended.”
