Packway Handle Band / Press

"This is how I like my bluegrass served up – dark and passionate, with a side of blood."

"The Packway Handle Band mixes dark themes and old-time religion with a uniquely modern folk aesthetic that pins down just what American music is all about."

"One thing is obvious to all: The Packway Handle Band is not your father's bluegrass band."

"If you like Chatham County Line and/or The Avett Brothers, then you should catch this perpetually touring five-piece for a trad-absurdist experience delivered from exceptionally seasoned youths."- David Eduardo, Flagpole Magazine Athens, GA

"Southern music is a big influence on Billiter and he admits that shows in the lineup. 'The South is full of storytellers,' he said. The Packway Handle Band, an alt bluegrass band from Athens, Ga., is one example...'They are a perfect example of melding traditional music with modern Americana,' [Evan, concert director] Billiter said."

"Packway Handle's strength is in its cohesiveness. Vocal Harmonies and string syncopations lock together like Legos.…" -Aspen Daily News.
