Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper

Join us for an incredible night of music by the 2020 GRAMMY winner for Best Bluegrass Album Michael Cleveland & FlamekeeperAccording to the Boston Globe, “it’s obvious Michael was destined to become one of bluegrass music’s contemporary stars.”

Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill says “he plays fearlessly, and it’s intoxicating to play with him because he makes you play fearlessly! He takes no prisoners, but he plays with restraint and a soul. He plays without abandon.”

Make it a weekend – spend the night at the beautiful Sheraton McKinney Hotel with our discounted bluegrass rate of $79/night

Michael Cleveland is IBMA’s most awarded Fiddle Player of the Year with 12 wins, has won Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year six times, and fronts the 6-time IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year. Together with Flamekeeper members Josh Richards (guitar), Nathan Livers (mandolin), Jasiah Shrode (banjo) and Chris Douglas (bass), Cleveland makes his way around the country delighting audiences, leaving them with jaws dropped in complete amazement.  According to Vince Gill, “It’s wicked to see how much music he pulls out of a bow. He’s untouchable”.
