Compton & Newberry

Mike Compton and Joe Newberry mine one of the more neglected segments of country music history, that period during the '30s and '40s when brother duet music was transforming into bluegrass. Both masters of the bedrock instruments of old-time music, they collaborate with a vision that is both modern and ageless. As virtuosos of old-time mandolin, banjo & guitar, they dig deep into early country music and blues – a limitless library of brother duets, traditional instrumentals, mother ballads and award-reaping originals. Their combined pedigree spreads over the 4+-million regular listeners of Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion to the millions of devoted fans of the Grammy-winning Oh Brother, Where Art Thou and Down from the Mountain soundtracks.  For more information, go to www.comptonandnewberry.com
