Tommy Morse – banjo

“Moss” is a first-call picker in southwestern VA, (a place with more banjo music per square mile than anywhere else on earth). Playing a little closer to the neck than most, his fills are tasty, giving the music a real sense of class. When he unleashes on a Monroe fiddle tune, it is all bark and tradition!

Mike and Moss have worked together in other lineups for more than 10 years and are enjoying the collaboration in Mike Mitchell Trio/Mike Mitchell Band, very much!

Tom Klingelhofer – bass

“Tom K” is a University of Miami and Manhattan School of Music Jazz Cat. New Jersey-based, he also keeps a studio in Floyd, VA

Though Tom is new to the bluegrass music scene, his solos are impeccable and his drive has as much groove as it has punch.

Jake Mosley

Mandolin and vocals

From The Mosley Brothers,

Jake and his brother, Joey, influenced by the traditional styles of Flatt and Scruggs, play and sing with wonderful brother harmonies and tasteful, highly-skilled picking. It is an honor to have the brothers play and sing with MMB.

    I just wanted to say that I grew up listening to your album “High and Lively”. I was born and raised in Fayette county, WV. About 15 minuted from high and Lively street in fayetteville. Music has always been a part of my life and influences me even more when it seems to echo from the mountains I was raised in. My parents went to see your show you had there at the Whitewater rafting lodge. You were sitting on a stump signing autographs and my mom tripped and fell into your lap 😂. I just had to share that. I live in Florida now so nolstalgia hits me hard sometimes. When I want to go home, I just pop in high and Lively, some John prine, or some Flatt and scruggs. I’m a self taught guitarist and it’s music like yours that inspires me to continue to try to better myself. In more ways than one. Thank you for your time, and keep up the good work!

    Hi Sarah–Thank you for sharing that great memory and the fact that you like my music! We always enjoy hearing that! The teacher part of me loves to hear that you are inspired to keep working on guitar! We will be in FL with our bluegrass/folk band in 2019, if not before. If you listen to Spotify, please add me to your playlists. Thanks, again!
