My Grass Is Blue presents
Sideline in concert
Doors 7pm // Gig 8pm
Tickets €27 from www.mygrassisblue.com
… driving music with crisp instrumentals and tight harmonies. Whether playing bluegrass classics or contemporary tunes destined to become classics, they deliver a great show. – Bluegrass Today
Although having recently celebrated 5 years as the pedigree six-piece bluegrass powerhouse they are, Sideline
founders Steve Dilling (banjo), Skip Cherryholmes (guitar) and Jason Moore (bass) can all claim their own historical significance to the genre as members of highly awarded groups with multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances and decades of national and international touring experience between them – the present celebrated lineup is complemented by the gifted youthful trio of Daniel Greeson (fiddle), Troy Boone (mandolin) & Bailey Coe (guitar).
What started as a side project for seasoned players, hence the name, Sideline has since released 4 critically acclaimed albums combining a well-chosen mix of new material with hard-hitting neo-traditional covers of bluegrass classics. Recorded or live, their pulse-pounding drive, perfect timing, crisp instrumentals, powerful harmonies, and on-stage energy and finesse remind fans why they fell in love with bluegrass in the first place.
