Mike Penton

Mike Penton is a singer and musician who grew up on Fogo Island, in the community of Joe Batt’s Arm. Penton’s love of music started early – his mother and two sisters are musicians and there was always a guitar in the house. At 18 years old, Penton has played several concerts locally, and performs regularly at the Fogo Island Inn.

Penton’s residency with Fogo Island Arts consisted of professional musical training and performance opportunities in Europe in spring-summer 2017.
