Mike Heffinger’s musical roots go back to playing in his family’s Bluegrass Band in North Carolina. As a young adult he played some pretty hard core rock and roll music but, when his Dad retired and gave him a nice Banjo, he found a home playing hard-driving bluegrass banjo and offering harmony vocals. Mike’s goal is to keep Traditional Bluegrass Music at the forefront and never deviate from his Dad’s Bluegrass roots. Have to carry on the tradition !
