Veteran fiddle virtuoso

7:30pm // Atwood Concert Hall

Considered the bluegrass fiddler of his generation, Michael Cleveland's phenomenal skill and blazing speed have made him a star of the scene. Born blind, Cleveland never let his visual impairment slow him down. After his grandparents took him to a bluegrass festival at age 4, he immediately picked up the violin and learned to play by ear. “It’s wicked to see how much music he pulls out of a bow,” declares country legend Vince Gill.

Fearless and untouchable, the GRAMMY-winner has been awarded Fiddle Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association a record 12 times, and together with his band, Instrumental Group of the Year 7 times.
