The Greencards - (Jimmy Ryan opens) at the me & thee !
The Greencards

Drawn together by a common passion for creating inspired newgrass acoustic music, the Greencards crossed continents to collide deep in the heart of Texas, quickly making a name for themselves in the Austin music scene.

Raised in Coff's Harbour, New South Wales, Carol Young was nominated for best female vocalist and best new talent by the Country Music Association of Australia (CMAA). Young also enjoyed two No. 1 Australian singles in 2000 ("True Blue Fool" and "Part of the Past"), which landed her the Australian independent country artist of the year award.

Kym Warner, from South Australia's capitol Adelaide, was a four-time national mandolin champion of Australia (1994-1997), earning a scholarship to the acclaimed bluegrass program at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, along the way. His "Mando on the Mainland" was nominated for instrumental of the year by the CMAA in 1999. Warner was also a member of Kasey Chambers' touring band, which played at Austin's annual SXSW festival near the end of her 2001 world tour. The fertile musical climate he discovered in Texas had a profound effect on him.

Shortly after arriving in Austin, the duo from Down Under began crossing paths with fiddle player Eamon McLoughlin. They started to pick together, then booked shows around Austin. In 2003, they recorded their debut album Movin' On with guitarist Pat Flynn and drummer Kenny Malone.

Nine of the album's tracks were written by the band (with Fred Eaglesmith co-writing the title song). The three covers feature singer-songwriter Jedd Hughes chiming in Gillian Welch and David Rawlings' "Caleb Meyer," while Harry Stinson adds rustic harmonies to Keen's "Love's a Word I Never Throw Around" and the late John Duffey's (Seldom Scene) classic Gothic lament, "Victim to the Tomb."

In 2004, they toured all over Texas and across the U.S. As a result of their energetic live shows, they were named best new band at the Austin Music Awards and nominated as best new emerging talent at the Americana Music Awards. Throughout the year, they appeared at numerous festivals, including SXSW, Merlefest, Strawberry and Austin City Limits Festival and opened for Keen at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

In 2005, they issued their second album, Weather and Water on Dualtone Records -- in the midst of a tour of summer ballparks, opening for Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. A third album, Viridian, was released in 2007. Fascination followed in 2009.

The band unveiled a new lineup on their 2011 album, The Brick Album, which featured Warner and Young as well as fiddler Tyler Andal and guitarist Carl Miner.
