The Greencards
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with The Greencards from Nashville, TN on Friday February 24, 2012 at the Albert S George Youth Center in Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. From the first notes struck together in 2002 through a 31 date tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, up to and beyond their fifth studio album in 2011, The Greencards have won steadily escalating acclaim for their multi-dimensional Americana vision. Their releases have topped the Billboard Bluegrass charts. In both 2008 (for their Viridian album) and 2010 (for Fascination), they were nominated for Grammy Awards in the "Best Country Instrumental" category. They've earned ovations from "newgrass" music devotees at Merlefest and from indie-rock loyalists at Lollapolooza and the Austin City Limits Festival. RollingStone.com noted "This imported band is creating some of the finest Americana around."

But this four-piece band, spearheaded by Australian Carol Young and Kym Warner, is interested less in past accomplishments than in looking ahead for new goals to achieve. Produced and engineered by studio veteran Justin Niebank (Vince Gill, Mart Stuart, Keith Urban), The Brick Album on the band's own Darling Street Records is the first to infuse The Greencards' eclectic musicical references with the excitement they generate onstage.

The Greencards have picked up some influential fans along the way. Their 2009 release, Fascination, prompted Rosanne Cash to say, "The Greencards are a little island of truth and beauty in a sea of artice and mediocrity. What a fine group, and what a great collection of songs." Buddy Miller called it one of the year's "most inventive discs... simply stunning"

But with this new release, The Brick Album, the world becomes more than ever The Greencards' stage. Their sound defies category, balancing taste and technique, engaging lyrics and melodies and wildly creative arrangements. There may be a wall on The Brick Album's cover, but the future suggested on these tracks knows no barrier. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $12 and may be purchased in advance at www.brownpapertickets.com or at the door.
