Mike Beck performs in numerous solo acoustic shows over the years, and he always provides an outstanding show. Two of his songs were listed in the “13 Best Cowboy Songs of All Time” in the April, 2009 issue of Western Horseman (“In Old California” and “Don’t Tell Me.”)
According to Ramblin' Jack Elliot, "Mike Beck plays the guitar like a Byrd. His strings do things that mine could never do. They obey the slightest finger-touch commands like a fine Reining Horse."
Born and raised in Monterey County, California, at age 13, Mike Beck went to the Monterey Pop Festival and liked what he heard. He picked up a guitar and never looked back. Since that time, he has been composing and performing a wide array of folk, rock and Americana music. Mike's songs reflect his life as a professional musician and a working cowboy in Montana and Carmel Valley near Big Sur.
