Sacred Sounds Of Grass

SACRED SOUNDS OF GRASS setzen im Zeitalter der elektronischen Klänge mit ihrem rein akustischen Sound Kontrapunkte. Der Bandsound ist charakterisiert von vokaler und instrumentaler Perfektion. International gelten SACRED SOUNDS OF GRASS als die authentischste Bluegrass-Band außerhalb der Vereinigten Staaten. Bühnenerfahrung seit 1979, dem Gründungsjahr der Band, belegt eindrucksvoll die Beständigkeit in der Qualität der Musiker, die von den internationalen Konzertbühnen kaum mehr wegzudenken ist.
Die vier bisher erschienenen Produktionen haben in der europäischen Bluegrass-Music neue Maßstäbe gesetzt und wurden international mit den höchsten Auszeichnungen honoriert.
Die Gruppe kann darüberhinaus auf zahlreiche live-Radioauftritte und TV-Produktionen zurückblicken.

Sacred Sounds Of Grass - Centergrass 2023

Rawhide

Rawhide is going into its 45th year of existence and has been renowned in Europe for stretching the boundaries of bluegrass towards other styles of music such as barbershop, classical, swing and pop. Their live shows combine a variety of tasteful instrumental and vocal music with lots of humour, both during and between the songs. A show with Rawhide is always special and different than with any other bluegrass band. With Rawhide you can expect the unexpected.

The Wanton String Band

The Wanton String Band play hedonistic folk-inspired psychedelic dance music. Their sound ranges from face-melting, trance-inducing renditions of fiddle tunes to synth-infused murder ballads. Their ecstatic, infectious take on traditional music has had audiences dancing on tables and hanging from rafters since their formation in 2016.

Coming from a range of musical backgrounds including traditional Celtic, indie pop, electronic and Renaissance, the band was introduced to American old time fiddle music by fiddler and vocalist Nathan after a chance meeting in Istanbul. Enthralled (some might say obsessed) by the music’s melodies, warm string sounds and hypnotic repetition, the members fused their disparate influences with their favourite picks from the old time canon. The result is the ecstatic, tradition-rooted, and shamelessly danceable sound of The Wanton String Band.

The Wanton String Band are Nathan Bontrager (fiddle, voice), Stuart Graham (bouzouki, voice), Chris Jones (mandolin), Ewan Macdonald (fiddle), Richard O’Flynn (drums, synth, voice) and Jess Whelligan (cello, voice).
