Sassagrass is a group of hard-hitting multi-instrumentalists who combine originals and traditional bluegrass with choice covers composed in a jam-grass style. They are known for their unique, high-energy sound, and for stretching the limits of their instruments and the bluegrass genre. The band is comprised of nationally renown mandolin player, Mark Schimick; flat-picker, Morgan McNamara; bluegrass fiddler, Ryan Eversole; and Upright Bassist, Greg Howell. Playing together in different capacities for over 20 years, they started this project as not only an ode to musical friendships, but an outlet to combine their love of various styles of music with masters of the craft. The result is a a musical treat for both your ears and soul. The driving beat keeps your feet moving, while the complex jams allow listeners to experience familiar songs in a new way. The band closed out 2016 with the release of their first album, Menagerie, at a CD release show with Peter Rowan. These old friends are excited to take their new project on the road in 2017.
