The Rise of Shadowgrass

Shadowgrass burst onto the scene with a familiar and groundbreaking style. Their fast picking, fresh arrangements, and ability to draw from diverse influences have set them apart. It’s not just about the music; it’s about the experience they create, a world that draws listeners in and keeps them hooked.

A Band of Cultural Richness

Each member of Shadowgrass comes from an area steeped in traditional music, which heavily influences their approach. They feed off each other’s musical ideas and energy, creating a constantly evolving sound. The music isn’t just bluegrass; it’s a fresh project that branches outside the bounds of traditional music while maintaining the soul of its origins.

A Year of Triumphs

The past year has been a whirlwind for Shadowgrass. From their debut at the Pearl Street Warehouse to their overflowing performance at the same venue a year later, they’ve captured the hearts of fans and the attention of bluegrass legends alike. Jeremy Garrett of The Infamous Stringdusters and Billy Strings have recognized the talent within this band, with Strings even inviting them to his debut festival, Renewal Festival.

Looking Ahead

With a packed tour schedule that takes them from the BackCountry Festival in Nevada to the Earl Scruggs Music Festival in North Carolina, Shadowgrass is on a trajectory that promises great things. Their music is a testament to the power of bluegrass and its ability to evolve while staying true to its roots.


Shadowgrass is more than just a band; they’re a movement. They represent the future of bluegrass—a future that’s bright, bold, and irresistibly engaging. As they continue to tour and share their music, one thing is clear: the journey of Shadowgrass is one that many will follow and even more will cherish.
