Greensky Bluegrass Bring Award-Winning, Genre-Bending Music to Mt. Tabor Theater for Two Nights Over Halloween
This Summer Finds Quintet Featured on CNN and Performing to Audiences of Thousands at Rockygrass Festival, Grey Fox Festival and All Good Festival
The music that Greensky Bluegrass performs can best be described as a breath of fresh air, relaxing, invigorating and a welcomed change from the current climate. The Kalamazoo, MI based quintet uses traditional bluegrass instruments — dobro, banjo, guitar, upright bass and mandolin — to create original songs that are unique, yet familiar and cover songs unconventional to their roots (The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan).
The Midwestern boys have had an incredible summer, touring nationally and featured at the Rockygrass Festival in Lyons, CO, on the main stage at the legendary Grey Fox Festival in upstate New York and performed in front of an audience of thousands at the All Good Festival in West Virginia. The quintet delighted campers at the All Good Festival by performing a surprise midnight to sunrise ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Guerilla Grass' jam session that was captured by CNN and featured here.
Greensky Bluegrass has quickly become one of the most exciting touring acts on the road today, performing their trademark sound nationwide at over 160 spirited shows a year. This energy is captured perfectly on their new live double-CD release, /All Access: Volume One/. The first in a series of recordings of select shows from the road, the band offers nearly 30 songs, originals and covers, taken from a November 2009 performance.
Since winning the 2006 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest, Greensky has been touring constantly, playing over 170 shows a year, and all the hard work is certainly paying off. Recent highlights are too many to list, but include selling out venues in many parts of the country, sharing the stage with musical heroes, getting asked to play shows with the likes of Tony Rice and Peter Rowan, Sam Bush, Yonder Mountain String Band and Railroad Earth.
