Mike Munford

Mike Munford is one of the hidden treasures of the five-string banjo world. Growing up during the 60’s and 70’s in the twin bluegrass hotbed of Baltimore and D.C., he assimilated just about everything that all the great players in that area could offer.  His own style can best be described as hard-driving, melodic, and so much more — when Mike Munford plays you hear all things that great banjo players strive to achieve:  power, drive, impeccable timing, exquisite tone, and jaw-dropping technique.  Mike also does fine set-ups and fret jobs and is a walking encyclopedia of banjo trivia.  He plays with Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen
