“Six Feet of Earth” is Mike’s second solo installment, including some of his favorite ballads from rural America, Ireland, Scotland, England, elsewhere, and a few from his own pen. The 11-song collection features Mike on a litany of traditional string instruments, along with guests playing hammer dulcimer, cello, uilleann pipes, sitar, and various surprises. You will hear murder ballads, love stories, work songs, traditional instrumentals and a two original works, all rendered in Mike’s various tones: plaintive, haunting, crooning, playful, and sanguine. Folk music as vivid as six feet of earth can sustain. Listen and see.
