About mygrassisblue.com
Formed in late 2018 and based in the beautiful seaside town of Wicklow on Ireland’s east coast, we are a family who grew up on the sound of classic country music and bluegrass (it’s all Dad’s fault). Taking a passion to the extreme, with mygrassisblue.com we’re working hard to promote the best of the bluegrass genre and to specialise in bringing it home to Ireland and beyond to the UK and mainland Europe.

Unrivalled on the continent of Europe in both our ambition and scope, we aim to accommodate artists wanting to expand their overseas performance experiences by facilitating all aspects of tour logistics. To that end, since our inception we’ve been building a Europe-wide network of like-minded bluegrass-friendly contacts (venues, festivals, regional promoters etc.). We believe that it is through these lasting and mutually-beneficial relationships that we will ultimately succeed in our goal of facilitating the further promotion of the bluegrass sound across the continent, while solidifying our status as Europe’s leading hands-on one-stop tour management and support agency for bluegrass music.

I wrote this next instrumental… I thought so long and hard about the roots of bluegrass music & where it came from, emm, in my studies of Bill Monroe’s music, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, people like that… and eh, my first trip to Ireland… felt like I’d died and went home. It felt so wonderful to be there and play music with the neighbours in the hood over there… and eh, they sure know how to play… it wasn’t no strain at all for me to jump right in & play the tunes I knew and they mixed right with tunes they knew and many of them were the same tunes just with different names… and eh, I kinda thought of that when I wrote this tune… kinda started out the Celtic way and kick into a little bluegrass.”

I hope the My Grass is Blue team will be recognized in some manner by the International Bluegrass Music Association. They are working very hard to fulfill the first letter of the IBMA acronym in their home base in Ireland. They are taking bluegrass to an international level by hosting many shows and respecting the roots of our music. A wonderful organization.
