The Grascals

The Grascals are among the most beloved and acclaimed bands on today’s bluegrass scene, having won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s, “Emerging Artist of the Year award in 2005 and earning its Entertainer of the Year honor in both 2006 and 2007. They take another stride forward, having just won the “Bluegrass Group of the Year” award, and just two weeks ago releasing their fourth album The Famous Lefty Flynn’s, available March 30, 2010 on Rounder Records.

Vocally, the trio of Terry Eldredge, Jamie Johnson, and Terry Smith are tighter than ever, cutting loose on driving solo vocals and soaring trios with equal fire and passion. As an instrumental unit, The Grascals have never sounded sharper, with mandolin ace Danny Roberts, fiddler Jeremy Abshire, and new banjo player Kristin Scott Benson leading the charge. As a result, The Famous Lefty Flynn’s features cutting-edge modern bluegrass delivered with a deep knowledge of and admiration for the work of the music’s founding fathers.

Their roots can also be traced back to Nashville’s larger musical community, where the Grascals have been able to draw on legends like Bobby Osborne, Vince Gill, the Jordanaires, Steve Wariner, Lloyd Green, Paul Craft and others for songs and for performances in the studio, on stage, and for national television appearances, including The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Thanks to those experiences and those friendships, The Grascals embody a profound grasp of and familiarity with country and bluegrass tradition that made them a natural choice for Dolly Parton to turn to for recording and tour support not long after the group was created. They've shared the stage with Dolly Parton, Brooks & Dunn, Dierks Bentley, Patty Loveless, Mac Wiseman, J.D. Crowe, Charlie Daniels, Kenny Rogers, Steve Wariner, Vince Gill, the Jordanaires and many others.

Timely yet timeless, The Grascals make music that is entirely relevant to the here and now, yet immersed in traditional values of soul and musicianship. It’s a unique sound that has earned two of their previous releases, The Grascals (2005) and Long List of Heartaches (2006) Grammy® nominations for Best Bluegrass Album.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see one of the finest bluegrass bands on the planet today right here in Verde Valley at the elegant and acoustically pristine Old Town Center for the Arts on Tuesday, April 13th, 7:00 PM.
