A New Orleans native, Burke Ingraffia’s music combines the witticisms of Southern jazz with the thoughtful lyrics of the American folk tradition. Think of the conversation if Mose Allison and Danny Barker had a poker game with Paul Simon and John Prine. He was a 2012 Kerrville New Folk finalist.

“Burke Ingraffia is an anomaly. He’s serious about what he does, but manages to keep it light.” ~Lawrence Specker, Mobile Press-Register

2012 Kerrville New Folk Finalist, Kerrville Folk Festival

“Something of a Renaissance Man” ~Vancouver Sun

“So much music these days tries to be either cool or ironic or transgressive or morose that we think a lot of us listen to music expecting some sort of formidable-ness. Ingraffia’s music, by contrast, disarms our expectations, gives us something kinder, more sincere and playful” ~ Image Journal
