Mike Compton

World renowned master of the Mandolin, Mike Compton, will be performing at the Yinnar Pub on Wednesday 20th March.
Mike will be joined by the Strzelecki Stringbusters for another great night of bluegrass and old timey music.

Mike is best known for his performance in the movie and soundtrack of “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”, the hit movie featuring George Clooney.

His critics write, “Whether playing with The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Helen Highwater Stringband, The Jumpsteady Boys, in duet with guitar virtuoso David Grier or old-time banjoist and songwriter Joe Newberry, or as a solo performer, Mike shines with his brilliant playing and humble respect for the music.”

Mike is returning to Australia from the USA after only being here in November last year, and refers to Australia as his “second home”. His performance in Yinnar will be just prior to headlining for three weeks on the Bluegrass Music Cruise of New Zealand and Southern Australia, on the luxury ocean liner, the Voyager of the Seas.

In a fabulous double event, the Baylor Brothers will also be performing at Yinnar that night.

Entry is $20 at the door. To book, please phone the Yinnar Hotel ph. 03 – 6163 1263. Contact John Werner for further details ph. 0400 964941Mike Compton
