Lands End Bluegrass

LANDS END are a diverse group of young musicians who crossed paths at the UK’s premier bluegrass workshop, Sore Fingers, which is held annually in Oxfordshire. Originally formed for a one-off show, the band, who have been tutored by some of the most prolific names in bluegrass, made such an impact in their first performance they couldn’t possibly stop there! The members hail from Cork, Galway, Dublin, Munich, Liverpool, and Gloucestershire and their name, ‘Lands End’, pays tribute to the fact that each member comes from a different geographical location.
Although their music is strongly embedded in the bluegrass tradition, with double bass, dobro, 5-string banjo, guitar, mandolin, and fiddle, each member brings the distinctive sound of their own tradition to the musical arrangements of the band. Playing a mix of original material alongside bluegrass standards and the odd hint of Celtic and Baltic tastes, Lands End have been gathering huge momentum since they formed in April 2012.
