also fun and "outside the box" approach to playing bluegrass.
Theirs were not just a chain of mournful love-sick songs (like I thought some of the other bluegrass bands were)-- instead, they chose songs with many topics. They are known for their interesting merging of styles-- for an example of this, hear their song "Red House" on their MySpace page. This is bluegrass-- but bluegrass like you may have never heard it before.
The members of the Bluegrass Regulators are Luke and Jake Dewhirst (banjo, guitar, vocals), Martin
Stevens (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Molly Adkins (guitar, vocals), and Josh Adkins (bass, vocals). Many of them have won awards for their instrument playing since they were children; they are young adults now, and putting all these skilled players together has resulted in a band that is able to easily try out new ideas and create music for unique self-written bluegrass pieces.
They have one CD, The Bluegrass Regulators (2010), and are working on a second one
now. Be sure to keep an eye--and ear--out for this talented group.
