Bluegrass Gospel Project
Unparalleled vocal harmonies. Eclectic, stirring repertoire. And roots planted in the bluegrass tradition that yield complex, inspiring music from this group of incredible musicians. This is the Bluegrass Gospel Project (BGP), a group that's been doing something unique for more than 10 years: exploring and expanding the tradition of bluegrass gospel, drawing on traditions from U2 to the Stanley Brothers, Sam Cooke to Steve Earle. The six members of the BGP bring decades of rich musical depth to the group.

Taylor Armerding, the group's front man, mandolin player and singer, was a founder and lead singer for Northern Lights, the progressive bluegrass group that took the bluegrass world by storm in the 1980s. He was invited by Gene White, Jr. (fiddle) to form the group in 2001 along with Paul Miller (vocals, guitar), Steve Light (banjo, Dobro, guitar, vocals) and other notable musicians to do a one-time performance to a packedhouse on New Year's Eve. The band's chemistry and the music's broad appeal was powerful beyond anyone's expectations, and the group continued to perform, with Colby Crehan (female lead vocalist) and Kirk Lord (upright bass) joining the BGP in 2007. The group's natural on-stage abilities sweep the audience off their feet with smooth, blissful vocal work, seminal musicianship, and a camaraderie that few bands exhibit.

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 Coffeehouse (Arlington, MA; 2010, 2013).
