What a weekend! It’s a gift to be able to enjoy beautiful music in an inspired setting with old friends and new. FreshGrass is a festival all its own, with bluegrass and new american music bouncing off the red brick walls of Mass MoCA‘s 19th century industrial compound, a contemporary art museum nestled between the still-operating train tracks and the Hoosac River in Western Mass.
We’re honored to receive first place in the 2013 FreshGrass Award Competition at Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA. We were joined in the finals by 4 incredibly talented bands from Boston to Nashville, and performed for a group of dedicated Sunday-morning risers and the intimidating American-Idol style panel with judges from FreshGrass, Compass Records, and Mass MoCA. We were waiting for that Simon Cowell cutting blow from Alison Brown– no dice. We’re happy to report we’re coming home with $5,000, Compass Records studio time in Nashville, and a 2014 FreshGrass slot.
Many many thanks to all the organizers and volunteers at FreshGrass and MassMoCA, and to everyone who came out to support us! We’re in the process of booking some tours all along the Atlantic, so drop us a line if you’d like to see us near you!
