Michael Cleveland is simply one of the best fiddlers in the world. Cleveland will be a part of a big
three-day lineup (Friday-Sunday) at the Whispering Beard Folk Festival
in Friendship, Ind., which also includes The Fairfield Four.
For fans (known affectionately as
Beardos), WBFF has grown well beyond its original local-showcase format
and become a regional/national talent draw. This year’s headliners
include former Drive-By Truckers guitarist Jason Isbell and Trampled by
Turtles side project Dead Man Winter, impressive names on any marquee.
