Peekskill, NY   See Map
Singer-Songwriter Frank Miglorelli takes the stage at the Bean Runner in Peekskill for an afternoon of original music and inspirational cover songs. Migliorelli has garnered critical praise for his four records with the Dirt Nappers- and he’ll be performing from that catalog along with new songs that will be recorded later this year for the next release.

Joining Frank will be long time Dirt Napper Tony Tino on bass- and possibly a few other “guest drifters who might wander on the stage for a few numbers” says Migliorelli.

Frank Migliorelli and The Dirt Nappers are a roots-rock Americana band that have been hailed as "undoubtedly talented musicians who write classic, timeless songs flavored with pop, rock and roots that you’ll want to listen on repeat." (Byron William, Indie-Spoonful)

"Some people just have the skills of a singer-songwriter in their genes. New York-based Frank Migliorelli is such an artist." - RootsTime/Valsam
