Great news for Western Australian Bluegrass Fans.

Multi-award winning bluegrass mandolin maestro, Mike Compton, will make a special appearance at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Sunday 30 October to showcase his stunning musical virtuosity.

Mike Compton has been labelled by the New York Times as “a new bluegrass instrumental hero.” He is a living bluegrass legend who has won Grammy awards for his musical work including the popular ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ film soundtrack, featuring the Soggy Bottom Boys hit song ‘Man of Constant Sorrow’.

Teaming up with Australia’s premier bluegrass band, Bluegrass Parkway, this high quality concert promises not only fans of country blues and bluegrass, but all real music lovers, a rare musical treat. Celebrating almost three decades together, the band has released five CD recordings, completed three tours on the US bluegrass festival circuit, and appeared at numerous festivals around Australia.

With an array of delicious bluegrass themed foods available pre show, and a stellar line up of musicianship, Mike Compton and Bluegrass Parkway bring you the best of authentic American bluegrass music with a genuine Nashville star not to be missed.
