Event Details

Reinforced with the will of the wild and strengthened by the stories of mankind’s struggles with desolation, Jeremiah Tall pulls his inspiration. Making his home in Bucks County, PA Tall finds himself writing the next chapter in his story. Three years since the debut LP Where The Lore Began, along with thousands of miles on the road, landed Tall on stages with greats such as Steve Earle, Gary Clark Jr. and Langhorne Slim. In addition to sets at The Philadelphia Folk Festival, Bethlehem’s Musikfest, The Devils Backbone Hoopla and Oyster Ridge Music Festival. He now has his aim on a third release, From Bare Bones.
From Bare Bones comes out swinging with a massive sound full of robust vocal arrangements and a full band instrumentation to back up Tall’s hard-hitting percussive strumming style. The familiar one-man band has also bolstered his live image to support a full line-up. Together Jeremiah Tall with The Lore allows a restyling of his foot-stomping workers howl of a sound.

Baltimore-born and bluegrass-bred, The Dirty Grass Players have established themselves as a national touring band with one toe-tappin’ foot in traditional bluegrass while pushing boundaries towards progressive jam-grass. They have the flawless technique of the craft of fast pickin’, and combine that with fearless creativity that leaves the audience astounded.
Comprised of Connor Murray on Bass, Alex Berman on Banjo, Ben Kolakowski with the guitar, and Ryan Rogers on mandolin, this four piece is successfully bringing their growing fanbase a down & dirty performance. Their ability to seamlessly transition from down-home bluegrass to spirited improvisation makes each performance unique. Throw in some Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, and Hot Rize, and you’ll quickly understand what they mean by ‘dirty grass’.
Their inaugural self-titled album was released around the same time they won the 2017 Charm City Bluegrass & Folk Festival Band Competition. For the next few years, they successfully toured the Mid-Atlantic with festival and headline appearances all over the East Coast and support slots for the likes of the Travelin’ McCoury’s, Cabinet, and their hometown hero Cris Jacobs. In 2019, amid a busy touring schedule, they released their 2nd studio album, “Beneath the Woodpile”. Put together with alluring melodies, the band presents a sound precisely at the crossroads of traditional and progressive bluegrass.
In 2020, the pandemic crashed their world – as it did most musicians. But the Dirty Grass Players made the most of it, and used the time for writing and recording. Now, with a tour schedule of over 120 dates in 2022, they’re getting ready to release their 3rd studio album, produced by Cody Kilby (the Travelin’ McCoury’s). They’re making their way across the county with many festival dates along the way, so catch them where you can and let’s get dirty!
