Boy Named Banjo
Boy Named Banjo, described by Sonicbids as, "Tennessee's Americana apostles," is creating a lot of buzz in the southeastern music scene. The Nashville natives founded the group in 2011 and released their debut album, The Tanglewood Sessions, before graduating high school. Boy Named Banjo has since released its sophomore album, Long Story Short, performed at Bonnaroo, and received a nomination for "Best local Band (Nashville)" By The Tennesseean for the year 2015. Boy Named Banjo is currently touring behind its new EP - Lost on Main.
Grand Ole' Ditch
Grand Ole’ Ditch
...is a contemporary bluegrass band born in the mountains of Western Maryland. With a style steeped in Appalachian musical tradition, the band aims to reimagine contemporary music with bluegrass stylizations. The band derived its name from an important piece of Western Maryland history: the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. The Canal, nicknamed the Grand Old Ditch, carried coal from the Allegheny Mountains to the East Coast during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bluegrass told the story of the people of this era, and was an essential part of their culture. Grand Ole’ Ditch is continuing the bluegrass narrative using today’s culture as its backdrop and each band member’s unique musical expressions as its language.
