One of the most well-respected fiddlers in bluegrass, Michael Cleveland’s remarkable technical skill, sweet full-bodied tone, and blazing speed have made him a multiple award winner on the acoustic music circuit. Michael plays bluegrass in the classic style as created by pioneers such as Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, but he puts his own stamp on the music with his use of the five-string fiddle, giving him more creative options within the songs. His blistering prowess and technical fluency have since marked him as a sought-after musician, leading to performances with Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Tim O’Brien and J.D. Crowe and the New South, among other stars. Together with Flamekeeper members Josh Richards (guitar), Nathan Livers (mandolin), Jasiah Shrode (banjo), and Tyler Griffith (bass), Michael astonishes.
