Dead Center
Without a doubt, Mike Mitchell's best recording to date,
"Dead Center" follows a traditional bluegrass album model
and has some of the finest pickers in the business.
Produced and banjo-ed by Sammy Shelor (of Lonesome
River Band) with Wyatt Rice on guitar,
Jacob Eller on bass (Sierra Hull, Church Sisters), Jeff
Midkiff on mandolin, and Will Farmer (Blue Moonshine) on harmonies.

The CD also features Buddy Pendleton (an early Bill Monroe
fiddler) on twin-fiddle tunes.

Recorded at Mountain Fever studios and mixed/mastered at Blackwater Recording, in the heart of southwest VA's Blue Ridge Mountains.

Mike Mitchell makes his home in Floyd, Virginia where he is
founder and director of The Floyd Music School. Playing regional and mid-atlantic bluegrass festivals in 2017 with his Bluegrass Trio.
