Event

Bluegrass Gospel Project
The Bluegrass Gospel Project has been impressing audiences with expertly-rendered performances since its inception in 2001, and has become "one of New England's premier concert acts" (Seven Days). At its start, the BGP focused primarily on that music from which they drew their name. Over the years, and hundreds of concerts later, the band's repertoire has comfortably morphed into an eclectic mix of songs which exhibit a wide stylistic range within the acoustic tradition and showcases their stunning vocal capabilities. There still remains a thread of spiritual sensibility throughout their playlist; songs that express common values held by people of all faiths and backgrounds; songs in which both serenity and optimism is found amidst the struggles visiting the human condition. With folk, pop, and bluegrass songs that range from U2 to Stanley Brothers, from Dylan to Louvin Brothers, from Sam Cooke to Steve Earle, from Bela Fleck to Brett Dennen, the BGP's repertoire now defies easy categorization and continues to thrill audiences with their impeccable vocal and instrumental performances.

"...a choir of top-notch vocalists  just try to find a better group of singers." - Robert Resnik, Seven Days

"Whether your interests are sacred or secular, their music ripples with human emotion and imponderable mystery, beautifully evoking the plaintive pilgrim that wanders, yearning and hopeful, through the heart of American musical tradition." - The Boston Globe

"They infuse their sound with one part melancholy, two parts celebration, giving [their music] depth that's never heavy." - Burlington Free Press

"This group is a force to be reckoned with onstage  their voices and harmonies can make you see the light, and tremble." - Vermont Life

Members of the Bluegrass Gospel Project are:
Colby Crehan (lead and harmony vocals); Taylor Armerding (lead and harmony vocals, mandolin); Steve Light (banjo, Dobro, guitar, bass vocals); Kirk Lord (upright bass); Paul Miller (lead and harmony vocals, guitar); Gene White, Jr (fiddle, percussion).

The Bluegrass Gospel Project has released five full-length albums: The Bluegrass Gospel Project (2002); On Our Way Home (2003); Wander On (2005) Makes You Strong (2006); The Blue Morpho (2009)

The group has appeared at hundreds of concert halls, festivals, and churches, including:
Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Emelin Theater (Mamaroneck, NY) , Flynn Theater (Burlington, VT), One Longfellow Square (Portland, ME),Old South Church (Boston), Festival Memoire et Racines, Canada, and St. John's Episcopal (Arlington, MA; 2010).
