Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA – Rounder Records is releasing this week the debut album by The Grascals. With an abundance of vocal and instrumental talent, the Grascals follow in the footsteps of artists like Flatt & Scruggs, Jimmy Martin and the Osborne Brothers, bringing the sounds of bluegrass to country audiences. Their debut blends old and new, classic songs and sparkling originals, polished harmonies and fiery picking into a seamless, soulful take on tradition.“I am so proud of The Grascals. They are one of the best bluegrass bands I’ve
ever heard. They are all so very talented as vocalists and instrumentalists.
Their new CD is one of the greatest albums I’ve ever listened to and the fact
it’s their first just tells you how talented they really are. I was very proud
to get to sing on ‘Viva Las Vegas’ with them. They have been opening my shows
for a while and people just love ’em.”–Dolly Parton
