Mandolin master Mike Compton has been playing with songwriter, banjo player, and guitarist Joe Newberry for several years, and the duo was recently on tour in Northern California. Lucky for us, Compton and Newberry stopped by the Peghead Nation studios while they were passing through town and played a few songs, including Joe’s original song “Singing As We Rise.”

Joe wrote the song as a tribute to his mother, father, and sister, and the popular bluegrass band the Gibson Brothers recorded “Singing As We Rise“ on their album Help My Brother, with Ricky Skaggs joining in on vocals. The recording won IBMA’s Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year award for 2012.

Check out Compton and Newberry Livea 2013 release from Mike and Joe playing songs from the 1930s and ’40s, when brother duet music was transforming into bluegrass.
