Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper

Recommended Posts

I saw Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper in concert on Friday night and watched the documentary of his life ("Flamekeeper ") on Saturday night. The performance was great, and they did 2 encores.

Michael Cleveland has won the IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year award 11 times. He is an extraordinary musician despite (or perhaps because of) being blind since birth and 80% deaf in his left ear. He has the most unconventional bow hold that you will ever see. 

Here is a link to the "Flamekeeper" trailer. The whole documentary is worth watching. Enjoy!

I saw him play along with his band on PBS, I think the show is called Bluegrass Underground.  A phenomenal fiddle player, but he also played the mandolin as well.
