Wintergrass 2012 Performers-The HillBenders

Playing Wintergrass for the first time will be Springfield, MO’s The HillBenders. This bands roots are in the traditions of bluegrass, but push the boundaries of the genre by combining influences from country, rock, blues, jazz and Americana into their sound to produce something entirely new.  The band were winners in  2009 of the Telluride Bluegrass Band and in 2010 were winners of the National Single Microphone Championships. Currently the band has one CD project  “Down to My Last Dollar”  that features guest fiddler Jeremy Garrett of the Infamous Stringdusters. Lots of original music is included from this band with 11 of the 13 songs being original.

Mark Cassidy – Banjo , Gary Rea – Bass , Jim Rea – Guitar, Nolan Lawrence – Mandolin ,Chad “Gravy Boat” Graves – Dobro
