What do the bluegrass musicians from the best bands in the industry do when they are not touring? Form another superband! Though Sideline was originally formed as a side project for several prominent musicians during the winter bluegrass off-season, the group has become a full-fledged touring and recording act. There have been a few changes to the band’s lineup, but they’ve maintained a driving, traditional sound that has earned them a devoted fan base. Their third album, Colors & Crossroads, has just been released from Mountain Fever Records.
Sideline is Steve Dilling (banjo), Jason Moore (bass), Skip Cherryholmes (guitar), Nathan Aldridge (fiddle), Brad Hudson (dobro), and Troy Boone (mandolin).
