English | MWB was started by Marius Midtskogen in 2008 after being a part of the Drammen rock scene for many years. The band write their own material in the singer/songwriter genre, where they explicitly use bluegrass instrumentation. They mix in traditional bluegrass songs in their live shows, to create diverse concerts with new and older material, where the "THE GOOD MUSICAL EXPERIENCE" is the focal point.
The last years MWB have played several festivals and venues, like Risor Bluegrass Festival, Langesund Bluegrass Festival, The Kjerringvik Festival and Drammen River Festival in addition to Buckleys, Hr. Nilsen, Buddy and Larvik Kulturnatt.
