Big Red & the Grinners
Featuring banjo, accordion, double bass, acoustic guitars and percussion, Big Red & the Grinners move seamlessly from the likes of Technotronic’s ‘Pump Up the Jam’ to Tony Rice’s bluegrass classic ‘Freeborn Man’, or from Jay Z’s ’99 Problems’ to Kelly Joe Phelps’ masterpiece ‘Window Grin’. Trying to describe the genius of this band is difficult – you just need to see them!
"Clever repertoire, pitch perfect harmonies and top-notch musicianship make them the band I recommend to every festival I work with”
