Mike Barnett got his start as a fiddler with the great bluegrass pioneer Jesse McReynolds. He's been playing with Tony Trischka and Michael Daves since he was 17 years old, and has played with David Grisman as a member of his sextet for the last 4 years. He's played with the well renouned young grass/roots band the Deadly Gentlemen for last 7 years. He's releasing his solo project on compass records, featuring such artists as Tim O'Brien, Aoife O'Donovan, Noam Pikelny, Paul Kowert, Chris Eldridge, and others. The lineup at Lizard Lounge features Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Grant Gordy (guitar) Jared Engel (bass), Emma Beaton (vocals, lead singer from Joy Kills Sorrow), and Wes Corbett (banjo).
"Mike Barnett is a first-class fiddle player and all-round musician. He's got the chops and knows how to use them, but he also has something to say, and that's a rare quality in a lot of music these days. I always look forward to playing with Mike he adds a real spark to my sextet." David "Dawg" Grisman
NORTH OF NASHVILLE
Every now and then a musical endeavor starts as a lark, but clicks so well, it takes on a life of its own one that deserves to be nurtured. That's what North of Nashville bandmates Jay Basiner and Andrew Martelle discovered when they began duetting in-between gigs with their regular band, a Maine outfit called This Way.
Pursuing their passion for honky-tonk and the Highwaymen, they quickly found themselves outdrawing their regular gigs and having far more fun. They finally gave in to the muse and made it official. And now, they're releasing their self-titled debut, an album that revels in the gospel of Willie, Waylon, Kris and Cash, as well as their musical brothers and sisters from across the vast Americana landscape.
