Matt Flinner has made a career out of playing acoustic music in new ways. Starting out as a banjo prodigy who was playing bluegrass festivals before he entered his teens, Flinner later took up the mandolin, won the National Banjo Competition in Winfield, KS in 1990, and won the mandolin award there the following year. Matt moved to Nashville in 1999 and is now widely considered one of the hottest and most creative mandolin players on the acoustic scene. He actively tours in the Matt Flinner Trio. Much of their music has been written with the backdrop of the Rockies as inspiration. The Matt Flinner Trio sets a new standard for the bluegrass trio configuration. Summer concerts are sponsored by Weber County R.A.M.P., and Wasatch Distributing. Media partners are the Standard-Examiner and Salt Lake City Weekly.
