Their duet-singing, two-man string band ranges between traditional songs, instrumentals, and some original tunes. Mike Compton is a Grammy award winner, IBMA mandolin player of the year nominee, a steady sideman for John Hartford from 1994 until Hartford’s death in 2001. Joe Newberry is a Missouri native and was a frequent guest on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. Joe won the songwriting prize for “Gospel Recorded Performance” at the 2012 IBMA Awards for his song Singing As We Rise.
