Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Mike Compton was at the 2016 IBMA World of Bluegrass gathering with a full itinerary. The Soggy Bottom Boys, the band Mike has been in since they provided the music for the hit movie O Brother, Where Art Thou, played a main-stage concert and opened the IBMA Awards program. Mike also gave a great demonstration on the Workshop Stage that Peghead Nation sponsored, and he played sets with his duo partner, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joe Newberry throughout the weekend.
Joe and Mike played ‘Please Baby’ during a late-night set at the festival, and we were glad to capture it.
