The Grass Is Dead
The Grass Is Dead
What’s in a name? Sometimes, everything… The Grass Is Dead are a bluegrass combo paying homage to the music and cultural legacy of The Grateful Dead, arguably America’s first folk rock band and one of the most influential musical artists of the last 50 years. The catalogue of the Dead’s music is a gold mine for string bands and story tellers, and The Grass Is Dead have established themselves far and wide as premiere purveyors of this rich tradition of Americana music. Pickin’ and grinnin’ is what they do best, and they have been adapting Grateful Dead songs in their own bluegrass style since 1998.

A festival favorite, The Grass Is Dead has built a loyal following from their home state of FL throughout the Eastern United States through burning live shows, and well beyond, through word of mouth, social media and old fashioned taper trees. The demand for Grateful Dead music is seemingly endless, and there are countless cover bands satisfying that demand on the local level, but there are not many artists out there approaching the music from the perspective of The Grass Is Dead. It is not complicated or artsy: this is a straight forward hootenanny built to last, and fans of either bluegrass music, The Grateful Dead, or both always leave happy, because sometimes there’s nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile…





"At the core of The Grateful Dead is the heart of American music, which is bluegrass and folk. You cannot hide behind these two genres. What you get in the studio is what you get onstage. And it's that vulnerability and honesty that sets the tone and attitude apart from the haphazard and polished nature of pop radio. Putting their music through the prism of string music, The Grass Is Dead showcases how Jerry & Co. buried innumerable gems of wisdom — sonically and spiritually — in the rich tapestry of their melodies and lyrics, all of which radiates in intimacy and inclusiveness of The Grass Is Dead when they stand in front of the microphone, and also the unknown night of curiosity and exploration that they seek out and grasp with such ease."

Turkeyfoot
Turkeyfoot
For a musical style born out of rural Kentucky, and initially popularized by a single band, bluegrass has a surprising knack for bringing people from all walks of life together. For Jordan Brandenburg (Mandolin), Michael Rudolph (Bass), Bridger Dunnagan (Fiddle), Dave Pailet (Guitar), and Alex Koukov (Banjo), bluegrass has been a way to connect with others, to make friends and to cultivate joy, so it’s no surprise that community is at the center of their band ethos. The five friends, who comprise Denver’s next big bluegrass band, Turkeyfoot, share momentous instrumental talent, an enthusiasm for collaboration, and some serious songwriting chops. Turkeyfoot’s debut EP was released on June 1st, 2018 and features four original songs as well as a cover of Norman Blake’s “The Railroad Days”. While the band’s original songs feature themes of love and loss in contemporary settings, musically, the members share a love for traditional, straightforward bluegrass and it shows in the no-nonsense, driving arrangements. After taking second place at the 2018 Rockygrass Band Contest,Turkeyfoot is looking forward to a busier tour schedule and recording a full length album. “We’re going to continue being dedicated to the craft, having fun, and continue to ratchet up the gigs so that we can share the music with as many people as possible”, says Rudolph, who plays bass and is one of two founding members. What is their end goal? “I want people to feel happy and inspired by our music”, says Brandenburg, “ and on some songs, I want them to cry.”
