Mike Barnes was inspired to play the guitar when he was just 11 years old by studying classical guitar with the late great Jerry Young. At 14, he formed a band called Blue Sky with childhood friend, Warren Haynes. They spent their rehearsals and performances working on the art of improvisation. Mike went on to study at University of Miami, Musician's Institute and UNCA and holds two music degrees. Mike has recorded on countless recording sessions in Memphis, Nashville, and L.A. and was signed to recording contracts with Geffen Records and Polygram records. He has been fortunate to study and share the stage with some of the worlds greatest and most influential guitarists and musicians including Jimmy Page, Pat Martino, John Scofield, Joe Walsh, The Allman Brothers Band, Robben Ford, Jimmy Herring, Derek Trucks, Ben Harper, John Paul Jones, Branford Marsalis, Neal Larson, Jeff Sipe, Jerry Jemmott, The Black Crowes, Moe, String Cheese Incident, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and Steve Miller to name a few.

Mike Barnes has been teaching at Musician’s Workshop since 1977 and is also a faculty member in the University of North Carolina at Asheville music department.
