Pinegrass

Sunday, May 20th - 5:00 pm

Pinegrass, Missoula’s bluegrass variety show, has been popular in Western Montana for 25 years. Originally formed at the iconic Top Hat Lounge where the band played weekly on Tuesdays in the 90’s and 2000’s, Pinegrass is still going strong. Rooted solidly in bluegrass, old time, and folk, they are a fixture at the regional Hard Times Bluegrass Festival as well as local breweries, markets and outdoor events.

Led by river guide and banjo/dobro player Jack Mauer, Pinegrass has explored a diverse universe of tone from Celtic to country to Christmas all the way to Bob Dylan. On the Martin dreadnaught guitar and smooth lead vocals, Pinegrass showcases Ted Lowe. Fiddlin’ John Joyner also adds clawhammer banjo. Folksinger Britt Arnesen joined in 2015 as a singing “doghouse” bass player, tightening up the group’s powerful three-part harmonies.
