Mike Block Trio, featuring Joe K. Walsh (mandolin/vocals) and Noah Fishman (bass/vocals), is led by cello player, singer, and composer, Mike Block, who has been hailed as “one of the bravest, most intriguing musicians on the American fusion scene” by Gramophone Magazine. The trio fertilizes American roots music with contemporary and international influences, bringing an exciting and personal perspective to the acoustic music scene.


"daringly taking his trio towards new musical possibilities … a rousing musical breakdown with classical music themes and progressive preciseness. Block takes a more urban approach here, giving bluegrass a bold statement, where the worlds of Del McCoury meet Mahavishnu Orchestra.” - Glide Magazine

“A collection of playful and stoic reinterpretations of Appalachian folk and world beat music. Never before have we heard the combination of these three instruments traverse such a wide breadth of music so effortlessly; it’s equal parts Baroque, bluegrass and latin jazz, virtuosic all the same.” - WBUR Boston

“a burst of musical potency to the ears … chamber music stirred gently with a bluegrass spoon. These fellows have a good grip on entertainment with classical instruments. Highly recommended.” - Americana Highways

“a supergroup of three virtuosic players” - Saratoga Today

"Their music is artfully composed and pleasant to listen to." - NYSMusic.com

"delivered enormous stage presence and energy, with a highly diverse program." - The Lawrentian
