Enjoy the World Famous Grassholes

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.

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.

From racing fiddle tunes and old-time Monroe classics to Dead jams and ballads, the Grassholes borrow and steal from the best of them, mixing in original compositions with unique arrangements of traditional works – sometimes even a song written in the current century. It might be hard to listen without a porch swing or a glass of lemonade or a sundress that clings to the front of your legs, but you’ll just have to give it a try.
