Master Mandolinist Mike Compton with Milltown in August!
Legendary mandolinist Mike Compton hails from Nashville and is renowned in the world of mandolins & bluegrass. He will join forces with the progressive bluegrass band Milltown for a Sunday afternoon show in Garrison.
Mandolin Magazine calls Mike Compton a player with “a worldwide reputation as one of the modern masters of bluegrass mandolin… one of the most recognizable and respected mandolin voices anywhere”.
Bluegrass Today writes “go see Mike Compton’s solo show and prepare to be gobsmacked. There are powerful people in every walk of life. Mike Compton is the General George Patton of the mandolin. Breathtaking is the only word.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyFC7PZ6jiI (Mike Compton)
Milltown is a progressive bluegrass band with traditional roots. The band hails from the Quad-Cities area. They perform a mix of originals, bluegrass and old-time tunes, with occasional forays in other directions that make their show unique and high energy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXcHXrA83Bs (Milltown)
