Surviving the Music Industry

Mar 5, 2019

To some Michael Cleveland is another run of the mill, good ol’ boy from Indiana that can play a fiddle and that is always up for a jam. To others he’s the 11-time IBMA Fiddle Player Of The Year, most sought after bluegrass fiddlers of his generation, and now the focus of a movie documenting his life. Flamekeeper: The Michael Cleveland Story was recently released on digital platforms and it captures the challenges of Michael and the pursuit of becoming the renowned instrumentalist that he is today. In this sneak peek of our newest episodes, Michael and I talk briefly about the movie. In the full conversation, we dive into his thought process of “fiddlin” and the challenges he’s faced. In the meantime till the release, enjoy the movie, follow Michael and the band @mcflamekeeper, visit, and stay tuned for all new episodes April 2019.
