Michael Daves performed 3 years ago with Tony Trischka & Territory at the Hangar Theatre.  Perhaps best know for his Thile Daves duo with Chris Thile, Michael returns to WVBF 2015 in a new duo with fiddler Brittany Haas (he likes duos!).  Michael just kicked off a Kickstarter Campaign to fund the production of 2 CD’s that feature the same songs in the same order – huh?.  One will feature the traditional bluegrass interpretation, recorded live to tape, played by a great bluegrass band (Noam Pikelny, Sarah Jarosz, Brittany Haas, and Mike Bub).  The other will focus on a raw, experimental take on the same bluegrass classics. The Kickstarter campaign launched yesterday and runs through November 21. Here is a link to Michael’s Kickstarter Campaign page.
