Proudly presented by

The Truffle Valley Boys 🇬🇧 May 2023

THE real deal. Old-school, hard-core bluegrass music. Done right.

By “Bringing back the sound of authentic 1950’s blue grass music since 2014”, The Truffle Valley Boys have carved out a niche for themselves as the premier proponents of the raw, old-school bluegrass sound in Europe. 🇪🇺

 The Truffle Valley Boys (L-R: Matt Ringressi (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals), Denny Rocchio (dobro/resonator guitar, guitar, vocals), Germano Ciavone (banjo, vocals) and Emanuele Valente (bass)). Grevengrass, Germany. June 2022.

This is an Italian quartet that perform authentic bluegrass in the most uncompromising way, around a single microphone using period instrumentation and with the utmost attention to musical and aesthetic detail – just think a 1954 Starday Custom blue grass single and you get a pretty faithful idea of what the Truffle Valley Boys sound like.

No strangers to the road, they clock thousands of kilometres each year placing themselves at the forefront of the bluegrass music scene in Europe. Headlining major festivals and events, their unique live performances have won them unanimous approval all over the continent while their recordings have received worldwide airplay and enthusiastic reviews in publications such as Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Today. Oh, and they also feature as part of a permanent exhibition at the shrine to the genre, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Owensboro, Kentucky.

A Truffle Valley Boys show is a real throwback to a bygone era, their music a tribute to the genuine, raw and powerful sounds of the more obscure regional bluegrass acts of the 1950s. Yes, it’s full steam ahead with a fiery drive and a healthy dose of good-natured entertainment, and we’re proud to be associated with presenting the U.K. portion of their spring 2023 tour.
