The Rigneys / Bio

The Rigneys are an award-winning band playing their own blend of original work and traditional arrangements that exhilarate your soul with energy, laughter and emotion. Well-known flatpicking champ, Andy Rigney, and his brother, Grant Rigney, a member of the 2013 International Bluegrass Music Association All-star Band, front the group. Their unique, appealing blend of family vocal harmonies and innovative bluegrass instrumentation exemplifies everything that is right about family playing together.

Having entertained at many locations across the U.S., France, and Spain, they perform at festivals, concerts, radio/TV shows, private parties, weddings, and similar venues. Recent and upcoming shows include Bluegrass Underground, the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival, Silver Dollar City, Song of the Mountains, Bloomin' BBQ and Bluegrass, Historic Jonesboro Bluegrass Series, KASU Bluegrass Mondays, Tennessee Fall Homecoming, Foggy Hollow Bluegrass Gathering, The Rooster's Wife, Woodsongs and many others.

The Rigneys’ latest project, Double or Nothing, was released by Dark Shadow Recording on September 10, 2013. It was produced by Stephen Mougin, label-owner and guitarist for the Sam Bush Band. Noted musician and journalist, John Weisberger, describes it as “straight-ahead contemporary bluegrass, with some sly references to tradition, and some beautiful material that makes it home in the fertile ground between bluegrass, country and folk. The title track was selected for IBMA's 2013 Songwriter Showcase.

Band members include Andy (guitar, vocals), Grant (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Melissa bass), and Mark (banjo, vocals). Andy is currently serving as the IBMA Youth Council President. He was also recently featured in the Sept/Oct issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. Both Andy and Grant have a long list of accomplishments under their belts, and additional information is available on their web site.
