LightSky Farms presents
YOUNDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND

With their latest album, “Get Yourself Outside,” Colorado-based quintet Yonder Mountain String Band  continues to solidify their place as not only a pioneering jam-grass act, but also one of the most innovative groups in live music —something the group has proudly held high for the better part of a quarter-century.

From selling out Red Rocks Amphitheatre at a time that was unheard of for string acts, to performing festivals like Bonnaroo, Yonder Mountain was the initial spark in an acoustic inferno decades ago that endures headlong into the 21st century—one burning brightly in an ongoing movement that is jam-grass.

Opening acts will be Bridge and Flint River Outfit.

Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass are the Feature Band for Blissfield Bluegrass on the River

Southeast Michigan Bluegrass Music Association Announces 2022 Feature Band Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass

 Blissfield, Michigan – November 17, 2021

The Festival will be held at Clara Bachmayer Park in Blissfield, Michigan on August 13, 2022.

The Southeast Michigan Bluegrass Music Association is proud to announce the date and feature band for the Blissfield Bluegrass on the River community festival. The Blissfield Rotary Club is the co-presenting sponsor. This is the 11th year of the festival that features area bands, local vendors, and local sponsorship. There is no admission charge due to local sponsorships and cooperation from the Village of Blissfield. The festival presents bands from a main stage, additional acts on a side stage, instrument workshops, craft vendors, lost arts demonstrators, a jam area, and the Kiddie Corner featuring Fiddling Dixie with Lil’ Friends. Attendance has increased each year, and the Association is expecting record attendance in 2022.

The featured band is lead by Bluegrass Troubadour Danny Paisley, who was recently named the International Bluegrass Music Association’s male vocalist of the year for the third time. Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass play powerful, unadorned, and intense traditional bluegrass. There is no hybrid or genre-bending music here. Their combination of instrumentation and vocals convey the energy and emotion of classic bluegrass and country music. Danny’s lead vocals will captivate your senses, so much so that many prominent musicians, including Alison Krauss, have considered Danny as one of their favorite singers. His voice combines powerful range and soulful blues with a sound like no one else in Bluegrass today. Since Danny’s father Bob Paisley (founder of Southern Grass) passed away in 2004, Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass have made their niche in the bluegrass world. Producing consecutive chart-topping albums, the group has been received over 15 Bluegrass Music Award Nominations and won the 2009 IBMA Song of the Year for “Don’t Throw Mama’s Flowers Away.”

With Danny Paisley on guitar, Southern Grass continues the family tradition adding Danny’s son Ryan on mandolin, part of the next generation of up-and-coming pickers. Southern Grass continues the rich musical heritage of started by Bob Paisley and Ted Lundy with Lundy’s sons T.J. (Fiddle) and Bobby (Bass and Vocals). T.J. Lundy is a highly respected fiddler bridging the gap between old-time fiddling and bluegrass music. Bobby Lundy is also a renowned multi-instrumentalist who has gained attention for his unique bass style. Southern Grass also includes Mark Delaney (formerly with Randy Waller and the Country Gentlemen, and Darren Beachley & Legends of the Potomac) on banjo.

The Southeast Michigan Bluegrass Music Association was formed in July of 2014 to serve the bluegrass community in the greater Southeast Michigan area and is a 501(c)(3) charity, a Michigan non-profit entity, and a member of the International Bluegrass Music Association. Blissfield Bluegrass on the River is part in our mission of: “Working Together to Preserve and Promote Bluegrass Music”. The Association also awards youth scholarships to deserving young musicians, sponsors jams and workshops, and recognizes those who have made major contributions to bluegrass music in the area with induction into our Hall of Honor.

The Association needs additional sponsorship to continue the Festival. Contact us from the Festival website: www.blissbluegrass.org.

The Association thanks the Blissfield Rotary and the Blissfield Village Council for making continuing the Festival possible and invites the entire community to join us in Blissfield on August 13th for a day of music and community fellowship.

Please check the festival website – blissbluegrass.org – for more information as it becomes available.
