Essential Listening : #23 The Deadly Gentlemen

Starting out as an experimental spoken word bluegrass band, The Deadly Gentlemen developed to play what they call “epic folk and grasscore”, a punk mentality applied to bluegrass.

Featuring Greg Liszt (of Crooked Still and Bruce Springsteen’s Seegar Sessions band) on banjo and vocals; Stash Wyslouch, guitar and vocals; Mike Barnett, fiddle and vocals; Dominick Leslie, mandolin and vocals; and Sam Grisman, double bass and vocals there is lots of three-part harmony singing, group shouting and general mayhem.

They’re in the UK this March to play the Celtic Connections Big Top mini festival and have a run of live dates around that promoting new record Carry Me To Home. File under ‘will appeal to fans of The Avett Brothers’.
