Michael Cleveland goes Viral "Fiddler's Dream" Video

Fiddler's DreamNashville, TN -- Compass Records writes, "We could not have been happier when the team here at Compass headquarters learned that Michael Cleveland had gone 'viral', racking up over 6M views in a matter of days for a backstage video shot with a stranger's phone. A precious example of the truly deserving finding its place in the landscape of cat videos, pratfalls and teenagers talking about themselves that dominate the internet."

Bluegrass Fiddler Michael Cleveland Announces New Album

Fiddler's DreamNashville, TN -- Michael Cleveland is one of bluegrass music's great treasures: a 10-time IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year, 4-time Instrumental Group of the Year winner and 2016 nominee, Cleveland captured the attention of the bluegrass community as a child prodigy who performed on the Grand Ole Opry with Alison Krauss when he was only 13 years old. But he became a viral video sensation this summer with a virtuosic impromptu performance of "Jerusalem Ridge" that racked up over 6 million views in just a few days. Now mainstream music fans are discovering what the bluegrass community has known for years—that Michael Cleveland is one of the most important fiddle players of his generation.
