Artist Spotlight: Danny Kroha
A weekly feature showcasing local artists.
Name: Danny Kroha
History: As a solo artist today, Kroha is known for playing a folky mix of blues and Gospel, but he’s got a loud rock ’n’ roll past as the guitarist for Detroit garage rock greats the Gories and later the punk trio Demolition Doll Rods. He also fronts the rock trio Danny & the Darleans.
Present: A 2016 Kresge Artist Fellow, Kroha released a solo album, “Angels Watching Over Me,” on Third Man Records.
Future: Kroha will be the opening act at the Magic Bag (22920 Woodward, Ferndale) Friday for the Mark Lavengood Bluegrass Bonanza. Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are $10 in advance. Visit themagicbag.com.
