Mike Parker - Fiddle and Guitar
A native of Jones County, Mike has made his home in the historic seaport town of Morehead City for many years. An accomplished guitarist, he took up the fiddle early this millennium. From the early age of eleven, Mike played electric bass in the eastern NC rock and soul band, "The Atlantic Coast Show". His older brother was also a member of that band.
As a military reenactor, Mike has been an experienced artillerist with Reilly's Battery.
Until late in 2014, Mike operated a wholesale sutlery, "The Southern Soldier," which supplied mid-1860s apparel to retailers. An array of Mike's products were included in the wardrobe for the 2003 production of Cold Mountain, among other productions depicting the period of the mid-19th century.
