We were especially impressed with the beautiful blending of voices these performers brought to our stage. Their musicality was superb and their musicianship second to none. Our audience brought them requests and they performed them to the delight of one and all. We enjoyed the performers' interaction and involvement with the audience. The band played for two hours without a break, even though an intermission was planned. We all got caught up in their passion for performing, and the time just flew by. It was nonstop Bluegrass at its best. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and give them our highest recommendation. Pam Martindale, City of Sky Valley -- Pamela M, Sky Valley, GA, 5/28/2011”

Along with prize money, the band won a highly sought after spot to play in the lineup of next year’s festival.

Ken Wheeler I am excited about the upcoming film festivals. This is my chance to show "Dixie Times" to the world and time for the actors to "shine". 1 month ago
Billy Grit is an authentic southern bluegrass band with a lot of talent. Mark Garrison is an excellent writer, singer, and musician who can play most all instruments used in Bluegrass music. I am very excited to be featuring music by Blue Billy Grit in the feature film, "Dixie Times". These folks are "the real deal"! The music of this group is perfect for our film and should lead to a great soundtrack featuring "Blue Billy Grit".
