Back porches. Parking lots. Living rooms. By the side of wood stoves and in the corner of an old barn. In bars and restaurants and up on a rickety stage. The Grassholes play music mostly because it’s a lot of fun and there ain’t much else better to do and they do it just about anywhere you’ll let ’em.
This is bluegrass, straight up, but not that old fogey kind. This is high energy, good for dancing, and meant to be enjoyed with friends and family. Part of a long legacy of performers that goes back to 2000, the Grassholes currently feature Heather Kahill on fiddle, Merrill Marsh and Sam Pfeifle on guitars, Flann O’Brien on the stand-up bass, and Field Rider on Banjo and harmonica. Everybody sings a bit here and there, whether you like it or not.
Here’s a song the Field wrote that has some fierce picking in it, by way of example.
Now here in Summer 2021, we Grassholes are ready to get back on the stage, back in the parking lots, back wherever people will let us play. Come on out, bring your friends, and if you’ve got a party that needs starting, give us a call.
We’ll see you from behind the mic!
