Buster Blue was a band I kind of forgot about a year or two until I recently heard them on a bluegrass/folk radio station.

A nice acoustic performance, although without their standard craziness! This one's off their most recent EP.



And apparently they crashed at someone's house while on tour, and ended up playing a few songs for them?

Another big bump for yonder mountain string band and especially my favorite:

The String Cheese Incident

Cornmeal is an up and comer on the jamgrass scene too, oh and can't forget about Hot Buttered Rum too

If you haven't already, I urge you to check out The Infamous Stringdusters! These boys are seriously raising the bar every night they play. It's rooted in bluegrass but with a progressive/jam element and some out-of-this-world improvisation. By far the tightest bluegrass outfit on the scene IMO.

You won't be disappointed!

Hot buttered rum is one of the first I heard about when I started looking for new bluegrass groups. So good!

I've got a pretty big Spotify playlist going if anyone uses that for music. I'll post the link in a bit when I get back to my computer. I'm always adding to it, but its around 1200 songs now.

Hate to be negative on such a cool thread, but these guys should tune their instruments before they hit the record button.
Nothing negative there, I was thinking the same.

I have a local NC bluegrass CD that I love to blast when I drive through the mountains of WV. Good stuff.

Head For The Hills - I've never seen anything from them live before, but this is a nice little jam video!

That is a great little place. I saw Town Mountain at the Station Inn on January 11. It was so relaxed, low-key, and awesome. That's how I like to listen to live music.
I was there that night!!!

There are some GREAT suggestions on here. I'll be checking out some of these folks here ASAP.

I do have to brag, though...last night we got to go to a taping of Mountain Stage (an NPR show). We got to see Larry Keel, The Downhill Strugglers, Lunasa, aaaaannnnnnnd....ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. Wheeeee! What a good time. I feel so lucky to live where I can just about go in any direction and find music that I love. One of my goals this summer is to go to the Carter Family Fold. I can't believe I've lived here for five years and haven't made it yet...

Not your traditional bluegrass band, but Caravan of Thieves is an amazing group. I personally enjoy the Gypsy Steampunk groups like Gogol Bordello and The Peculiar Pretzelmen, but these guys are blending strings, horns, percussion, etc. to make a great sound!

Check them out! Also, you have to watch the whole thing. There is a violin/percussion solo near the end that is incredible!

Americana - David Bromberg and Big Band. Bluegrass with horn section, or Blues with fiddles.

North Americana - Natalie MacMaster

For fun -Yonder Mountain

They were only around for a couple of years, but probably responsible for introducing Bluegrass to more people than anyone in recorded history.
