"Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper "
Thursday, Nov 21st / CoMMA / 7:30 PM

Michael Clevelands blistering prowess and technical fluency have marked him as a sought-after musician, leading to performances with Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Tim OBrien, J.D. Crowe and the New South, Andy Statman, and The Kruger Brothers in recent years. However, it wasnt until 2006, when Michael formed his own band Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, in which he found the right vehicle for his musical vision, and he hasnt rested since, constantly looking for new ways to push himself and his music forward. He plays fearless and its intoxicating to play with him because he makes you play fearless, says Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill. He takes no prisoners but he plays with a restraint and a soul. He plays without abandon. Clearly, the IBMA agrees as hes their most awarded Fiddle Player of the Year with 12 wins, has won Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year six times, and fronts their 6-Time Instrumental Group of the Year. Its wicked to see how much music he pulls out of a bow, continues Vince. Hes untouchable.
