Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper have announced that veteran bass player Marshall Wilborn has joined the band, and will appear with them on stage starting this weekend.
I had been expecting this announcement since last week, as the new band photo (to the right) was on display at the Roe Entertainment booth in the IBMA exhibit hall during the recently-concluded World Of Bluegrass trade show – even though Marshall was not with the band when I saw them perform.
Marshall has an impressive resume, having been a part of several notable bands over the course of his career. These include The Johnson Mountain Boys and The Lynn Morris Band, as well as a stint with Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys. His addition to the Flamekeeper roster will provide another successful notch on his belt.
