MICHAEL CLEVELAND & FLAMEKEEPER PERFORM A FREE CONCERT IN MUNCIE, INDIANA ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th AS PART OF THE MUNCIE THREE TRAILS MUSIC SERIES.
Compass Records recording artist Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper will be performing in Muncie, IN on Saturday, September 6th at 8:00 PM. This will be the third of four free concerts presented as part of the Muncie Three Trails Music Series and will occur at the Canan Commons Performance Stage, 500 S. Walnut, in Downtown Muncie. Opening will be Indiana natives Stampede String Band.
After a rapturous reception as part of the 2013 Muncie Three Trails Music Series, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper return with an encore performance for the 2014 edition of the series. Cleveland, a fellow Hoosier, is a 9-time winner (including 5 of the last 6 years) of the prestigious Fiddle Player of the Year award given by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA). His band has also picked up 4 IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year awards. Playing dynamic traditional bluegrass, Michael is considered as perhaps the premier bluegrass fiddler of this generation. Picking up the fiddle at age four, his talent was recognized early on. He has appeared numerous times at the Grand Ole Opry and has played with a who’s-who of bluegrass legends, including Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley, Jim and Jesse, and Alison Krauss. His band, Flamekeeper, consists of Glenn Gibson on banjo, Nathan Livers on mandolin, Tyler Griffith on bass, and Joshua Richards on guitar.
This show also serves to cap off Cardinal Greenway’s “Walk Indiana” celebration on the same day.
Michael may be available for press/radio interviews. Please contact Rick Zeigler (317-430-1452/smzfoundation55@
