theatre from Vancouver BC
Don’t listen to this band. You’ll be sitting on a dusty porch in the Appalachian Mountains after one song. With whiskey on your breath and a prayer on your lips they will fill your dreams with searing tempos, sinful harmonies, and an angelic charm you’ll want to take home to mother.
In 2007 these three young rogues were corralled into the studio to record On That Good Road, their ferocious debut album of original material. On That Good Road was nominated for best release of 2007 by the Georgia Strait’s Tony Montague.
Drawing on a wide range of bluegrass and old-time traditions, Redgrass puts the high lonesome sound through its paces, from rusty waltzes to blazing banjo breaks and all stops in between. This trio’s unbridled musical curiosity and penchant for good old-fashioned fun have given them a re4putation as and act not to be missed.
From the tiniest saloon to a large festival stage, these three charismatic gentlemen can’t help but connect with their audience. Telling stories, singing sad songs and playfully showing off their virtuosity, they make fast friends wherever they perform. Well, maybe you should risk a listen….
