Blue Flags & Black Grass / Bio

BlueFlags sound can be summed up as Modern American Skiffle. It combines JugBand and RagTime of the '20s and '30s with BlueGrass, Viper Jazz and a hint of Irish/Gypsy twang.

BFBG was born around the spring of '11 in Portland, Oregon. The typical gig is usually Flip and who ever else is available at the time. Depending on the players for the evening, BFBG's sound can be more of the jug/ragtime contingent or on the side of the gypsy-swing/bluegrass flavor....reguardless...it's good stuff.
