ShadowGrass is a group of young musicians from Western North Carolina and Southwestern Virginia who crossed paths at local fiddler's conventions in the summer of 2014. They began a musical journey that has led them to compete and win numerous ribbons as a band and individually at regional festivals. Although they have their own style, ShadowGrass is honored to be playing in the shadow of great bluegrass legends. The band consist of Presley Barker on guitar, Luke Morris on mandolin, Clay Russell on banjo and Kyser George on bass.
Strictly Clean and Decent, featuring Kay and Patrick Crouch and Ron Shuffler, is a JSMHM favorite. Their eclectic repertoire includes modern folk songs by American, Canadian, and Irish songwriters, the fiery breakdowns and songs of family and home found in both traditional and contemporary bluegrass settings, and centuries-old Celtic airs and dance tunes. All of this is peppered with a healthy dose of popular jazz standards, swing and western swing music, and a few classic country tunes thrown in to provide a program certain to be enjoyed by all.
