Dayton-area bluegrass group Sawgrass stops by Excursions for a fun performance and interview in advance of their performance at GearFest 2011.
Sawgrass, which formed in 2005 as an outlet for Springfield singer/songwriter Ryan Judy, is a modern interpretation of the musical stylings of artists such as Hank Williams and Bill Monroe. The group plays high-energy bluegrass music, full of strong harmonies and rich instrumentation.
In this Excursions performance, the group tears through a four-song bluegrass set, which includes the uplifting “Workin’ on a Building.”
