Mike Compton is a Grammy-winning recording artist and performer and the New York Times calls him "a new bluegrass instrumental hero." He's the founder of the popular Monroe Mandolin Camp, which takes place in Tennessee each September, and is a passionate teacher and advocate for the mandolin. As a performer, Mike takes the stage solo and with many ensembles including his duo with Joe Newberry, Jumpsteady Boys (with fellow Peghead Nation instructor Bruce Molsky), Helen Highwater String Band, and many more.
