In the summer of 2014, a group of young musicians joined together at local fiddler’s conventions in Southwestern Virginia and Western North Carolina and formed a group that has become one of the most exciting young bands in bluegrass today. Since that time, they have won awards and payed all over the United States sharing their love of music. Although they have their own style, ShadowGrass is honored to be playing in the shadow of great legends. Holding to their bluegrass roots, fast picking, and fresh arrangements have earned the band numerous awards in youth and adult competitions across the region.
ShadowGrass has had the privilege of playing at exciting venues, including Heartwood, The Blue Ridge Music Center, The Lincoln Theatre, The Historic Earle Theatre, and at festivals such as The National Folk Festival, MerleFest, HoustonFest, The Richmond Folk Festival, The National Youth Workers Convention, SPBGMA, The Lowell Folk Festival, The Montana Folk Festival, and the IBMA StreetFest. They were honored to be chosen as a featured youth band for the IBMA WOB Festival in 2016 and 2018. Their foot-tapping music and charming personalities continue to draw a crowd and gain encouraging fans with each new place they visit. ShadowGrass is looking forward to contributing to the heritage of bluegrass music for years to come. The band included Presley Barker, guitar; Kyser George, bass; Luke Morris, mandolin and Clay Russell, banjo. All of the members are award winning youth musicians. ShadowGrass is striving to be the next torchbearers to carry on bluegrass music to future generations. ShadowGrass has been called “one of the most thrilling bluegrass bands to emerge from the musically-rich Crooked Road area in recent memory.” Shadowgrass appeared on the Today Show with Al Roker during the 2016 IBMA WOB in Raleigh. Presley and Kyser appeared on NBC’s Little Big Shots.
