Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper
Dave Peterson's strong commitment to traditional bluegrass music and David Harvey's wonderful Monroe style mandolin play were excellent. Charlie Cushman on banjo is a master of many styles of play. Andy Todd on bass, who I don't remember having heard play before, did his job in solid fashion. Mike Cleveland played his heart out, but I missed hearing Jerusalem Ridge and The Lee Highway Blues. However, I must confess to having gone to bed as he was taking the stage at the late end of a long and wet Saturday night. In the end, we can only wish this extraordinary young man who has dominated bluegrass fiddle for years success in drawing together a new band that can continue to represent his music and bluegrass as well as it has in the past.
