The event has passed.

Incredible 8-piece bluegrass/country supergroup from Glasgow, The Black Denims open this year’s SpringGrass Bluegrass Festival in style with support from the instrumental wizardry of Australian/Scottish duo, Rain of Animals. Tickets will go fast!

The Black Denims are Scotland’s newest country supergroup. With an expanse of 8 members, hailing from disparate musical backgrounds, the band manages to blend the disciplines of Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, Folk, and Country into their story telling lore. Each member brings their own set of skills and accolades, with some stretching as far as winning the prestigious ‘BBC’s Young Musician of the Year’ award, to studying and then teaching at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland!
Their first extended play release ‘Grateful For Small Mercies’ debuts on 5th March and is one third of 3 acts set to be released this year. With traditional bluegrass instrumentation, alongside jazz piano accompaniment, the band have a very diverse sound, which is present in their enigmatic and energetic live performances!

Rain Of Animals is the euphonious collaboration between Pepita Emmerichs (Oh Pep!) and Theodore Barnard (Wire & Wool) and their love of all things mandolin, fiddle, guitar, harmony vocals, bluegrass, oldtime, swing, tunes and songs. Spanning originals to arrangements of classics and gems of rarities you wish you had discovered earlier, their sound is both new and old, unique in it’s instrumental wizardry and musical integrity all at once!
