Man About A Horse
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Man About A Horse on Friday June 15, 2018 at The Albert S George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. Lets face it, Philadelphia isnt exactly known as the bluegrass music capital of the world. While the citys thriving music scene is one of the best in the nation, Phillys signature sound in the twenty-tens has much more to do with distortion guitars than banjos. Thats just one of many reasons that the chance encounter in 2014 between two Northern Liberties neighbors that led to the formation of Man About a Horse was so unlikely. Three years later, the band has blossomed into one of the areas most exciting bands on the American roots music scene.

This quintet is known for its vocal harmoniesto which all five members contributeits uptempo, high-energy sets, and its rock-solid, authentic songwriting. While bluegrass music is sometimes typecast as the sleepy, back porch sing-along, Man About a Horse infuses its music with flurries of sixteenth notes on banjo, fiddle, and mandolin that makes their shows hearken to bluegrass roots as dance music.

Put it this way: at a Man About a Horse show, the question isnt if someone will don the bands signature horse-head mask and dance-trot around the floor, but when in the set it will happen.

Each of the five Yankees in the band found their own unique avenue to bluegrass and acoustic roots music in their youths, and their paths didnt cross until adulthood. As children of the 1990s, they also have pop music in their blood, and cant resist re-interpreting modern popular music in an acoustic stringband context (Radiohead, anyone?), balanced with the fresh originals and ripping bluegrass standards that comprise their setlists.

Man About a Horse has performed at festivals around the northeastern U.S., and shared bills with the likes of Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, The Travelin McCourys, Danny Barnes, Donna the Buffalo, Wood & Wire, and many others.

Their debut album (The EP, 2015) earned national airplay and rave reviews. In spring 2017 they self-released their debut full-length album, which debuted at #11 on the Billboard Bluegrass chart.
