INDIANAPOLIS - State Rep. Terry Goodin (D-Austin) today presented a resolution honoring Grammy winner and Hoosier, Michael Cleveland.

Cleveland is a fiddler from Charlestown, Indiana and began playing at a young age, having learned to play by ear.

“This is a very special presentation for a very, very famous Hoosier and musician from Indiana,” Goodin said.

“I couldn’t begin to discuss all of the accomplishments Mr. Cleveland has achieved… in fact, the list would be as long as a bluegrass mile.

“It’s an honor to stand beside this talented young man and the great state of Indiana is lucky to have him.”

This year, Cleveland won his second Grammy Award in the category of “Best Bluegrass Album” for his album entitled, “The Tall Fiddler.”

Cleveland’s musical talents have taken him all over the world and have enabled him to play with numerous country and bluegrass legends such as Bill Monroe, Allison Kraus and Vince Gill.

Senate Concurrent Resolution 47 passed unanimously today in both the Senate and House.
