Free Grass Union at Stephen Talkhouse
May 28, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
Born in the winter of 1999, Free Grass Union has spun its new sound of old-time music for over a decade and counting. The term “Free Grass” is a moniker for the band’s genre-defying music, with a deep-rooted foundation in bluegrass and folk. Listeners of Free Grass Union will hear a blend of musical influences ranging from jazz, funk and psychedelic, woven into acoustic Americana. The band’s essence lies in their heartfelt songwriting, performed with technical prowess by Greg Butler (Mandolin/Vocals), Kim Humphrey (Guitar/Vocals) and Mitch Erdman (Upright Bass).
FGU has made regular appearances at festivals including NY Harvest Festival & Freedom Fair, The (Austin Memorial) Dam Show, The Long Island Bluegrass Festival, Sterling Stage String Fling, and various Groovelink and Jibberjazz productions. Free Grass Union has performed at stages across the region, including theaters, fairs and fests, galleries, private events, and even a Hobo Homecoming in 2007. FGU has shared the stage with The David Grisman Quintet, Ricky Scaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Jonathan Edwards, The Wailers, Rusted Root, JGB, DJ Logic, KRS1, and many other talented artists.
