Mike Compton to appear at Mountaingrass 2016


mike2Grammy and IBMA award winning bluegrass mandolinist Mike Compton has been confirmed as a headline act for Mountaingrass 2016. He played with the legendary John Hartford, recording a half-dozen albums with the Hartford String Band and touring extensively until Hartford’s death in 2001. Wearing his signature pressed blue overalls and rocking and weaving with fluid body motion, Compton stuns not by tricks or artifice, but through his singing, his ability to engage a crowd, and through decades of honing his technique into the unique, one-of-a-kind Compton signature mandolin sound.
