to bad you don't have more campfire pickin photos

It has been over ten years since Michael Cleveland has been to the Tri-State festival, and we are certainly excited that this native Hoosier will be making his long overdue return to our lineup this fall.

When he last appeared here, he was already a bluegrass icon, recognized not only as one of the (and possibly THE) best fiddle players in the world, but also as a top-notch bandleader fielding one of the Best groups of pickers in bluegrass (and possibly in the entire MUSIC world).

Ten years ago, he had already traveled as a member of Dale Ann Bradley and Coon Creek and Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, with whom he won the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Entertainer of the Year award. He had already won the IBMA Instrumental Album of the Year award three times! He had won the IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year Award five times and received a Grammy nomination. Since that earlier appearance, he has gone on to further cement his position among the bluegrass elite by winning Fiddle Player of the Year six more times. His band, Flame Keeper, won the Instrumental Group of the Year award in 2010, and he received another Grammy nomination in 2018 for his album, Fiddler’s Dream. His collaboration credits read like a definitive list of bluegrass legends.

The personnel in Flame Keeper has, of course, changed over the past ten years. However, like all truly great bandleaders, Michael has kept a top-notch outfit, both vocally and instrumentally, and the current lineup is no exception. Nathan Livers on mandolin, Jasiah Shrode on banjo; Josh Richards on guitar; and Tyler Griffith on string bass are each recognized among the finest in bluegrass on his instrument. Nathan, Josh, and Tyler join with Michael in delivering up the powerful vocal work.
