Montana Slim Stringband, The Bluegrass Revolution, The Deciders
San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival Fresh Grass Show


Montana Slim Stringband (MSSB) is an emerging progressive stringband from San Francisco. Built upon invigorating live performances, peppered with dueling melodic fiddle, mandolin and acoustic guitar improvisation. Passionate vocal harmonies, reflective lyrical tales and solid foundational bass rhythms can all be found in MSSBs original youthful interpretation of bluegrass. MSSB is a high energy four-piece stringband and now with their first full length LP, to be released in January 2009. myspace.com/montanaslimmusic


The Bluegrass Revolution is a hard driving stringband based out of Oakland, Calif. Coming from varied musical backgrounds, members of The Revolution blend hints of bluegrass, alt-country, gypsy jazz, blues and progressive acoustic music all with the traditional sounds of the acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin and upright bass. Members include Rockin Robin Eig, Matt Aiko McAlear, Tommy Boom Boom Widger, Steve May and Jesse Poteralski. thebluegrassrevolution.com


More familiar with the Decemberists than Bill Monroe, with firmer allegiance to Nirvana than Flatt and Scruggs, the Deciders are doing their best to reconcile these polarities. On the surface, the Deciders are a bluegrass band. However, youll find no (sincere) references to the high lonesome sound here; rather, fascinations with gentrification, fashion, pornography and pop culture abound. They bring fast, hot playing, and poppy, soulful harmonies. The Deciders are a bluegrass band, not for the ages, but for right now. decidersmusic.com
