Mike Murray has been playing folk, country, and original acoustic music pretty much all his life.  He’s won the Tumbleweed Songwriting Contest twice, performed at nearly every Tumbleweed Festival since the first one, and at other festivals such as Seattle’s Folklife, the Alaska Folk Festival, and others.  He’s played with the Smelter Rats, Smoke Creek, Brownsville Road, Idyll Hands, and solo.  A few years ago, the Kingston Trio  covered his “Grandpa Held the Snakes,” which also was a Tumbleweed Songwriting winner one year.  You can learn more about Mike’s music at his website, http://www.smokecreek.com/.
