Downtown Block Party: Dirty Grass Soul
April 21, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for the first Downtown Block Party of 2016 on Thursday, April 21st! Dirty Grass Soul will take the stage at 6 PM, and this family-friendly event will keep jamming until 9. Grab your lawn chairs and dancing shoes because this is an event you don’t want to miss.
Proudly hailing from the musically rich foothills of Cleveland County (Shelby, NC), Dirty Grass Soul has been entertaining audiences across the Carolinas and beyond since their formation in 2011. With a sound that draws much influence from traditional music of the North Carolina foothills, Dirty Grass Soul manages to bring a new, refreshed, and re-energized sound to their music that falls somewhere between country, bluegrass, and southern rock & roll reminiscent of acts like The Charlie Daniels Band and The Marshall Tucker Band. Rather than simply relying on heavy guitar leads, Dirty Grass Soul offers instrumentation that mixes in a heavy dose of fiddle, pedal steel guitar, and banjo . DGS is lead by founding members Kevin Dedmon (Fiddle, Vocals, Guitar) and Lance Watson (Bass, Mandolin). They are joined by Tyler Melton (Vocals, Lead Guitar),Dedmon’s brother Kris Dedmon (Banjo), Glenn Miller (Pedal Steel Guitar), Josh Allison (Vocals & Percussion), and Jared Miller (Vocals & Percussion).
