Music at the Frist: Mandolin Master Mike Compton in Solo Performance
Frist Center Cafe
Thu, Jan 23 6:00 pm


Mike Compton’s decades of touring and recording with musical luminaries ranging from rockstars Sting, Gregg Allman and Elvis Costello, to straight-from-the-still acoustic legends like John Hartford, Doc Watson, Peter Rowan, Ralph Stanley, and David Grisman, have established Compton as a true master of the modern American mandolin and a premier interpreter of roots and Americana musical styles. Mandolin Magazine calls him 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". He's Mike Compton--Grammy and International Bluegrass Music Association award-winning recording artist; solo, duo and band performer; and as passionate a teacher and advocate for the mandolin as you're ever likely to find. The New York Times calls Compton, "a new bluegrass instrumental hero."
