Jeremy Garrett
Jeremy Garrett
Jeremy Garrett is an innovative fiddle player, expressive singer and creative songwriter. He’s a founding member of the Infamous Stringdusters, who broke onto the national scene in 2007, scooping up 3 International Bluegrass Music Association awards, including Album and Song of the Year. Since then, the group has become a national ambassador for progressive bluegrass, playing to club, theater and festival audiences around the country, and hosting their own event, The Festy Experience—at which Jeremy’s production, the Garrett Grass Gospel Hour, offers a much-beloved highlight.

To fans of the Grammy-nominated Dusters, he’s known as “G-Grass” or “Freedom Cobra” for his dynamic stage presence, but to his fellow artists, the Stringdusters included, there’s another side, where songwriting and more intimate performances come to the fore. Working on his own and with a select group of collaborators, he’s been one of the group’s most prolific writers, contributing four songs to their latest release alone—one of them, the title track (“Let It Go”), won the USA Songwriting Competition’s Folk category in 2014—but he’s also scored cuts with artists ranging from Blue Moon Rising to Chris Jones & The Night Drivers to Sweden’s young G2 Bluegrass Band. And he’s been showcasing all of those songs, and more, in a growing number of concerts and showcases, both on his own and partnered with co-writer and soulful keyboards and vocals man Josh Shilling of Mountain Heart.

So it’s only natural that when Garrett’s thoughts turned to making a follow-up to 2005’s Garrettgrass Gospel, sung and co-produced with his father and an all-star supporting cast, and to 2009’s solo debut, I Am A Stranger (Sugar Hill), an all-original collection came to mind. The RV Sessions is just that, as well as a display of his increasing stature as a multi-instrumentalist capable of recording every note of the music by himself. With flavors ranging from straightforward bluegrass rhythms to rock and rhythm & blues, it serves notice that there’s another side of Jeremy Garrett to see and hear.
Bill Nershi
Bill Nershi
From the saloons of Telluride to the some of the most sought after venues in America, Bill Nershi has delighted countless fans as a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the String Cheese Incident, Honkytonk Homeslice and The Emmitt-Nershi Band. A seasoned veteran of flat-picking and a variety of acoustic styles, Bill adds a unique, colorful perspective to virtually any musical situation he encounters, and his enthusiasm and playful spirit encourage an interactive, participatory experience for musicians and fans alike. Billy still calls Colorado home and when he’s not on tour he is writing, recording and producing in his own studio, The Sleeping Giant.
