Bluegrass-flavored Jammy Tunes that make ya wanna dance and wiggle!


The Austin Steamers “Hangdog”

As I’m sure you know by now, Austin is no stranger to crazy, amazing talent. It’s proven yet again by local bluegrass and folk band, The Austin Steamers. They write a lot of original music and are wildly talented at their instruments. 

I once saw them play, and they ended up having about an hour-long encore. People can’t get enough of them, and I completely share that feeling.

Fiddle master Mike Barnett is at Joe’s Pub tonight!

Mike Barnett got his start as a fiddler with the great bluegrass pioneer Jesse McReynolds. He’s been playing with Tony Trischka and Michael Daves since he was 17 years old, and has played with David Grisman as a member of his sextet for the last 4 years. He’s played with the well renouned young grass/roots band the Deadly Gentlemen for last 7 years. He’s releasing his solo project on compass records, featuring such artists as Tim O’Brien, Aoife O’Donovan, Noam Pikelny, Paul Kowert, Chris Eldridge, and others. The lineup at Joe’s pub features Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Grant Gordy (guitar) Jared Engel (bass), Emma Beaton (vocals, lead singer from Joy Kills Sorrow), and Wes Corbett (banjo).

Mike Barnett is a first-class fiddle player and all-round musician. He’s got the chops and knows how to use them, but he also has something to say, and that’s a rare quality in a lot of music these days. I always look forward to playing with Mike — he adds a real spark to my sextet."  -David “Dawg” Grisman


Dom Flemons, formerly of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, joined Fresh Air in the studio to sing and play his enormous 1920s banjo.
