Greensky Bluegrass

Thursday, August 15

If you’re familiar with bluegrass music, then you’re tuned in to some of what Michigan’s Greensky Bluegrass does. They’re known to throw a great party with their amazing song writing and musicianship which has been contagious and has prominently placed them as one of the future leaders on the American bluegrass scene. According to Rolling Stone Magazine, “Greensky Bluegrass is representing the genre for a whole new generation.” They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? The grit and attitude of a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This quintet from Kalamazoo Michigan has been staying up late at national festivals and stopping to play your favorite clubs and theaters across America for 11 years now.  Nearly 175 shows per year has prepared them for the rigorous task of continuity. Greensky Bluegrass isn’t slowing down. “They’re coming to your town to help you party down.”
