Archiving the world of Americana, bluegrass, folk, old time and gospel since 2009.
grass clippings is a blog, not a business. We don’t chase clicks. We’re fans, not critics. We don’t make any money or sell advertising.
Please feel free to drop us a line with tips on new artists or just to say hi at grassclippingsblog (at) gmail.com <– We suck at responses! It’s not you.
Founder/Editor: Garland Harwood
Richmond, VA native Garland Harwood moved to Brooklyn in 2003 and immersed himself into Americana and bluegrass scene as an escape from city life. He started grass clippings in 2009 after stumbling upon Spirit Family Reunion at the farmer’s market and made the band the subject of his first post. The blog was widely unread for its early years, but gained steam as Garland (and the crew below) began heavily covering the Newport Folk Festival in 2011. Now it’s somewhat read sometimes.
Garland is not good at singing or playing the mandolin, guitar and banjo, but they all make him very happy. His day job is in PR and marketing. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Becky, and their dog, Banjo. Garland on Twitter.
