This is the first of our four part series featuring music from the 2016 Kluane Mountain Bluegrass Festival in Haines Junction, Yukon.
This very popular festival, which has been running since 2003, has presented amazing music from the finest artists in bluegrass. Including The James King Band, Balsam Range and Flat Lonesome. And we were there again this year recording more outstanding performances.
In today’s episode we present the five member band “Nothing Fancy” from Virginia, a band celebrated for their smooth vocal blends, stirring performances and irrepressible humour. Bluegrass music is known for it’s up-beat tempo accentuated by lighting fast instrumental solos. For this episode however, we slow the pace down a bit by including some of the band’s sweet melodic songs, coloured with a touch of melancholy – nothing fancy.
