Greensky Bluegrass W/ Ryan Montbleau Band

8:00pm

If you’re familiar with bluegrass music, then you’re tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They’re also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and (if the critics are to be believed) they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Ryan Montbleau was named the Best Local Male Vocalist in the 2007 Boston Music Awards.[6] He also won second prize for performance in the 2007 International Songwriting Competition.[7] Montbleau was nominated for a 2012 MTV Music Award for best concert experience.
