Tacoma, Wash. — Wintergrass 2007 has a special treat in store for fans of mandolin when Mike Marshall, Chris Thile and Hamilton de Holanda make their first appearance together on Friday night, February 23 as part of the Midnight Mandolins at Wintergrass on the Pavilion Stage.

Their appearance is being sponsored in part by The Fretboard Journal and Mandolin Cafe.

WinterGrass will be held February 22-25, 2007 in Tacoma, Washington at the Sheraton Tacoma Hotel and surrounding venues.

Mike Marshall has brought some great surprises to Wintergrass over the years including memorable performances with Edgar Meyer, NewGrange, Darol Anger, Psychograss and one of the first performances of his duo with Chris Thile.

Last year he introduced festival-goers to Brazilian bandolim phenomenon Hamilton de Holanda. This year Mike is introducing Hamilton and Chris Thile for the first time ever on stage at Wintergrass on Friday night at an historic midnight show. This will be the first time all three have performed together.
