About grass clippings blog
grass clippings aims to archive the much overlooked world of Americana and bluegrass music, with artist profiles, album reviews, news clips and more. We give special attention to the NYC Americana scene, but write about bands from all over. grass clippings is mostly focused on progressive and neo-traditional bluegrass and Americana artists. You’ll often see posts on artists here that fall outside of core Americana, but have elements of genres that we like.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We love to watch the little guys get big. We don’t like it when people put us in a box and we try to return that favor.
Please feel free to drop us a line with tips on new artists or just to say hi.
Thanks for dropping in,

P.S. If you’re a hyper-traditionalist bluegrass fan, you’re way to snobby for this blog.
