Blue Lass are a five-piece bluegrass band, playing a combination of original and traditional bluegrass and old-time songs and instrumentals. Their music has a raw and organic sound and their sets range from energetic instrumentals to moody songs which transport the listener with their stories. The band features an acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin, clawhammer banjo, and double bass, and through meeting and jamming together on the festival circuit the members felt inspired to arrange some pieces to perform together – from there, Blue Lass was born.
The band’s playing is reflective of their love of the great bluegrass of the fifties, but they also take a more contemporary approach in their arrangements, and blend old-time pieces into their sets. Each member takes their moment to lead the songs, adding variety to the mix, and the band’s strong harmonies help them to stand out in a line-up. Their dynamic performance, each stepping towards the single mic to improvise a solo, gives their shows an authentic vintage feel.
