Mandolinist Mike Compton to play MountainGrass 2016

The organisers of the Mountaingrass Festival have announced the first artist for its 2016 event.  It is acclaimed bluegrass mandolinist Mike Compton.

Compton is a Grammy and IBMA award-winning player and will be a very welcome headline act for Mountaingrass 2016.  Compton helped form the renowned Nashville Bluegrass Band, played with the legendary John Hartford, recording a half-dozen albums with the Hartford String Band and performed as one of The Soggy Bottom Boys on the soundtrack album O Brother Where Art Thou?  He is also an in-demand session player, a recent example being an appearance on the recent Rhiannon Giddens album Tomorrow Is My Turn.

Mountaingrass 2016 will be held at Harrietville (regional Victoria) on 18 to 20 November.
