Performer. Musician. Guitarist. Banjoist. Songwriter.
Mitch is known for his energy and showmanship, connecting and engaging with his audiences, and playing for hours straight without breaks. He creates his shows without a set list, and bases them on the audience reaction and building the energy in the room. Mitch says, “The idea of a three piece band excited me, as every member has to pull their weight…” His players Hank Maninger (bass) and Les James (drums) are top notch. Mitch plays so many gigs that he also has back up players Pam Brandon, Bill MacBeath, Tim Wagar, Ken Owen, Jimmy Touzel, and Timothy Orr for the occasions that he is fortunate enough to work with them.
