From the side porch of an old gristmill to the main stage of The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, following their win at the 2012 Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition, BlueBilly Grit has quickly become a force in bluegrass and Americana. Their modern style blending these two genres of music has a way of appealing to the newer generation of the grassroots movement and to those that have a love for the more traditional sound. Their unrivaled three-part harmony, traditional instrumentation, and the lead vocals of their soulful female singer are what make this magical blend work.
BlueBilly Grit recently did several radio and TV spots, including "Nuts and Bolts of Fishing" which aired on Turner Sports South, and the nationally syndicated "Moby in the Morning Show." The group also hooked up with Life Springs Studios to produce its third album, "BlueBilly Grit Live at The Melting Point", and a just released live video performance. BlueBilly Grit takes pride in the fact that they're not just another "hot lick, blazing solo" bluegrass band.
It's all about the song with this group, and rightly so because they have something to say.
