The 23 String Band
Hailing from all around Kentucky, the 23 String Band pays homage to the deep roots of American traditional music, while pushing forward with genre-bending, hard-driving originals and distinctive arrangements. Their youthful brand of "original hillbilly music" weaves in and out of old-time, bluegrass, acoustic roots, and anything else that strikes their fancy — it's not uncommon to hear a Beastie Boys cover by these boys. It's a contagious conglomeration that's entertaining and energetic, and will get you on your feet and dancing every time!
2011 is an exciting year for the 23 String Band, with performances on festival stages from Alabama to Wyoming, and a list of venues ranging from concert and listening room atmospheres to clubs where the music is rockin' and the floor shakes all night from dancing. The band has truly found their creative stride, with new compositions and arrangements at every turn. Fans can also look forward to the release of Catch 23, the band's sophomore album, this summer.
Notable 2010 performances include the Master Musicians Festival, the Forecastle Festival, the International Bluegrass Museum's ROMP, the Terrapin Hill Harvest Festival, the Kentucky Bluegrass Music Festival, and the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Other previous highlights include the 2009 Rhythm & Roots Reunion in Bristol, Virginia, and the 2009 Mountain Heritage Literary Festival in Harrogate, Tennessee.
