In our eighth of 10 Folk Fest Session Red Carpet Concerts, we present Cordova-based musician and fisherman Mike Mickelson. Listeners may recognize him as the longtime guitar player for Bearfoot Bluegrass. Here is his tune “She Don’t Like My Coffee.”
The Folk Fest Session Red Carpet Concerts are a collaboration between KTOO Public Media, Juneau filmmaker Ryan Cortes, and Gustavus sound engineer Justin Smith. Watch more videos with musicians like Caleb Klauder and Reeb Willms, or Liz Snyder and Patrick Troll. Tune in Friday for Austin-based Shaidri Alrich and Ezra Reynolds.
