Welcome to the Wild Hog in the Woods Coffeehouse

Wild Hog Presents a Streamed Live Virtual Concert with

Michael Bell

Friday, January 21, 2022 at 7:30pm CT

Mike is a composer, songwriter, and performer in both classical and grassroots traditions. His classical composition includes dozens of works for chamber ensembles, symphony, choir, mandolin orchestra, and solo piano.  In 2010, he co-founded the award-winning quintet Graminy, whose four albums bring grassroots and classical music together in a style the group calls “class-grass.”

Mike's original songs focus on social and environmental themes. He has written over a hundred “fiddle tunes” - jigs, reels, waltzes, airs, and more.

Mike performs widely on mandolin and banjo with Graminy, and on guitar as a soloist and as a member of the Elm Duo.

Mike is also an author and scholar. See his separate site on his books, articles, and teaching here.

He is a frequent performer at the Wild Hog.
