With his new release FIDDLER'S DREAM, Michael Cleveland delivers his finest studio album to date: full of the fire and finesse that has earned him fans from across the globe. Highlights include a blistering performance of the Arthur Smith penned title track “Fiddler’s Dream," a step out vocal from Sam Bush on the John Hartford classic “Steamboat Whistle Blues,” and a twin fiddle show down on the Monroe classic “Tall Timber” featuring Jason Carter (Del McCoury Band). Additional guests on the album include Jerry Douglas (Dobro), Jeff Guernsey (lead guitar), Barry Bales (bass) Lloyd Douglas (banjo) and co-producer Jeff White (guitar and vocals). Michael Cleveland has undeniably achieved a new personal best with FIDDLER'S DREAM and in the process has raised the bar for all aspiring fiddle players to follow.

FIDDLER'S DREAM will be available everywhere October 7th on Compass Records.
