Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper · 8:30pm
Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, It comes as no surprise that Michael Cleveland, ELEVEN-time winner of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Fiddler of the Year Award, is considered one of the premier bluegrass musicians of his generation. After picking up the fiddle at age 4, Michael’s musical momentum began to propel him forward towards early success. He debuted at the Opry as a guest of Alison Krauss and was hand picked for the IBMA Bluegrass Youth Allstars before he was 14. His blistering prowess and technical fluency have since marked him as a sought-after guest, leading to performances with Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, J.D. Crowe and the New South and most recently Hot Rise. However, it wasn’t until 2006, when Michael formed his band Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper, that he found the right vehicle for his musical vision. Since then, the band has earned numerous IBMA awards and nominations including five IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year awards.
In 2018 Michael was a Grammy Nominee and also inducted into the National Fiddle Hall of Fame in Tulsa, OK. The band is working now on their 2019 CD release on Compass Records, Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper are poised to add fuel to the fire they've already sparked in the bluegrass world. This talented band consist of Michael Cleveland - Fiddle, Jasiah Shrode - Banjo, Josh Richards - Guitar and Lead vocals, Nathan Livers - Mandolin and vocals, Tyler Griffith - Bass and vocals.
