Upcoming performances include Little Island NYC (8/1) and Times Square (9/3)."
Taking their name from the Long Island town (East Meadow) where they formed, Meadowgrass is a band that came together through their collective love for all of the key elements of the homegrown musical heritage known as ‘Bluegrass.’ The group combines their own unique juicy vocal harmonies with good old acoustic wood and strings instrumentation, and underpins it all with a hard-drivin’ solid rhythmic foundation. During a typical Meadowgrass performance, you’ll hear a variety of songs and styles infused with a deep respect for history and tradition, yet balanced with an open mind towards the many musical directions and possibilities Bluegrass music offers. We look forward to you joining us at one of our shows for some down home all-American Bluegrass music!

It's been a means for creativity and connection during this uncertain time. She's up to Sonnet 31, and plans to write the full 154 sonnets... eventually!

4:25PM Hot Grandpa
Atop our instagram we wrote: "A serotonin-soaked mystic string music buffet." Our instrumentation is typical for a folk band, but draw inspiration from far beyond the folk canon, reaching from the neo-soul movement to math-y metal or our parent's generations R&B. It would be like a dinner at the most beautiful and moving Golden Corral. Walk in and you can have a taste of whatever you like.
