He was recently on 89.3 KAOS in Olympia, WA doing an in-studio performance and was kind enough to allow me to post one of the songs from Charlie Zaillian's weekly show, Defensive Indifference.

Folks, if you are anywhere along Mike's tour route this summer, I highly suggest that you make the effort to go see him play. Mike is full of music and he wants nothing more than to share it with you. Though he has only one CD currently available, he has a lot more music in those fingers of his.
He recently passed through Colorado and I went to two of the shows.
So what will you hear at a Mike Fekete show?
You will likely hear Mike's treatment of a John Denver or a Band song.
But most of all you will hear Mike's work, perhaps his suite of songs titled Museum 1, 2 and 3, though he doesn't necessarily play them in that order.
Of course you will hear a few tunes from the CD, Raccoon in a Tree being one of my favorites, but you will also hear a lot of other music that hasn't been widely released (or at all). And that is part of what makes the live performance so essential, he has so much music to share that you probably haven't heard before!
And then there is the 20 minute finale, "The Sacred Monster Blues Suite" Fantastic stuff.
