2021 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

Freeway Clyde

Church Street in front of City Hall


Michael Chorney is a self-taught composer, guitarist, saxophonist, producer, sideman, and bandleader. He has lived and worked in Vermont for more than thirty years. His solo work and output with groups such as Hollar General, viperHouse, the MC6, and Orchid reflect the many different aspects of his writing. As an arranger, he worked most prominently on Hadestown, in collaboration with Anais Mitchell, with whom he has done many tours. As a producer, he has worked with Anais, David Moss, Iain Morrison, Adrian Roye, Round Mountain, Seth Eames, the Dupont Brothers, Maryse Smith, and many others. In 2019, he and collaborator Todd Sickafoose were awarded a Tony for best orchestrations. Chorney’s Freeway Clyde project focuses on yet another creative avenue: instrumental psych-rock film scores for non-existent movies.
