BlueBilly Grit, 2012 Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition Winner, takes you to a crossroad where Old Fashioned Bluegrass meets Progressive, Contemporary, and Rockabilly. With a love for all genres of music, BlueBilly Grit performs the music everyone loves along with new and innovative originals driven by a style all their own. Just three short years ago BlueBilly Grit was jamming once a year around an old grist mill at a county park. In February of 2011 a song the group wrote and recorded about that old grist mill was shipped to 800 radio stations in the US, Europe, and Australia. The song was released on a compilation cd along with songs from Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, Steve Martin, and The Grascals. Not bad for a group fairly new to the bluegrass Americana scene. Having just recorded their 2nd CD, “Ready For A Change”, this group continues to evolve into what they hope will be a force to be reckoned with. Amidst much uncertainty in the music world these days, BlueBilly Grit seems to be holding their course, and will be the first to tell you that a source greater than themselves appears to be calling the shots. BlueBilly Grit takes pride in the fact that they’re not just another “hot lick, blazing solo” bluegrass group. It’s all about the song with this group and rightly so because they have something to say. The theme of their performance schedule for 2011/2012 is, “Ready For A Change”. Try to catch them live or purchase some of their music this year and hear for yourselves what BlueBilly Grit has to say.
