The Grascals share bonds forged of personal friendships, shared professional resumes and an appreciation for the innovative mingling of bluegrass and country music. The Grascals cutting-edge modern bluegrass is delivered with a deep knowledge of the work of the music’s founding fathers. The Grascals unique sound has earned them three Grammy® nominations and two Entertainer of the Year awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. The Grascals’ appearances include The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Fox & Friends, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and CBS’ The Talk, as well as over 150 performances on the Grand Ole Opry. Honors also include performing twice for President George W. Bush and at President Barack Obama’s inaugural ball at the Smithsonian.
As their records prove, The Grascals’ rare musical empathy gives them an unerring ear for just the right touch – whether they’re digging into one of their original songs or reworking a bluegrass classic or a pop standard, like fan favorite “Last Train to Clarksville.” Non-bluegrass listeners enjoy a new take on a familiar song, while diehard bluegrass audiences who may have never heard the Monkees classic, respond in-kind, not even realizing that the song has been “Grascalized!”
