The Bluegrass Characters
The Bluegrass Characters deliver straight-ahead traditional mountain-style Bluegrass with soaring vocals and hard-driving instrumentals, following the recipe laid down by Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, and other pioneers of the genre. Longtime veterans of the New England Bluegrass music scene Phil Zimmerman (mandolin), Andy Bromage (guitar), Rick Brodsky (bass), and Pete Kelly (banjo) form the core of The Bluegrass Characters. Their performances have featured guest appearances by leading Bluegrass musicians like Tony Trischka, Andy Statman, Chris Brashear, Betsy Rome, Sofia Chiarandini, Joe Lemeris, and Korey Brodsky.
