Music on Top f/Mike Addington

Saturday, June 27th, 2020 -Noon Red River Ski & Summer Area 400 Pioneer Rd. Red River

Take a scenic chair lift ride to the top of the ski hill and enjoy great music, food, and beverages. Music on Top is every Saturday starting at 12pm-2pm at the Tip Restaurant. This week, enjoy music from Mike Addington.

Best described as Soulful Americana, Country Folk with a Honkey-Tonk edge; singer, songwriter, and guitarist Mike Addington began his professional career as soon as he could enter a bar. Mike picked up the guitar at the early age of 6, and never doubted his calling.

A veteran of honky-tonks, nightclubs, concert halls, and festivals, Mike has opened for many acts including Asleep at the Wheel, Leon Russell, Cross Canadian Ragweed and shared the stage with greats Joe Ely, Gary P. Nunn, Freddie Fender, Keith Sykes & Kevin Welsh (to name a few). A voice all his own and a guitar style second to none, Mike crafts songs that speak to a common thread among all of us. Observation and raw emotion are the primary tools he uses when writing.

Mike’s extensive repertoire runs the gamut from the roots of country music to the modern troubadours of today. A shirt-tail cousin of Maybelle Carter (nee: Addington), music runs through Mike’s blood. He learned to play chords by watching his Dad on guitar and Uncle Hobie on banjo. At six years old, his fingers barely reached across the neck.

Music on Top takes place every Saturday through September 19th, 2020.
