THE Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition is the premier bluegrass band in the Annapolis, Maryland area and they will be heading to Glór for a performance this September.
A love of bluegrass is deeply ingrained in the souls of these five fine musicians and they have been winning the hearts of bluegrass fans from all around the Chesapeake Bay area.
With the traditional combination of banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass fiddle, the Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition offers traditional and contemporary compositions laced with three part harmonies and bluesy solos. Indeed, it is soul that is the very essence of Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition.
Their music has been described as ‘bluegrass fireworks’. Rarely do you see artists that enjoy what they do as much as the Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition. Their warmth and interaction with the audience makes you feel as if they are playing just for you, and that’s exactly what they are doing.
Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition has been together for 10 years. Members of the band are Roger Green on guitar, lead and harmony vocals; Dan Kimball on mandolin, lead and tenor vocals; Sue Tice on fiddle, and harmony vocals; Bob Tice on banjo and harmony vocals and Jim Duvall on the acoustic bass fiddle. They are members of the prestigious Washington Area Musicians Association and perform mostly along the mid-Atlantic area.
Annapolis Bluegrass plays to enthusiastic audiences wherever they go. The band toured Ireland in 2003, where their shows went down a treat. Glór is looking forward to a great night of bluegrass.
For good old-fashioned family fun, you just can’t beat The Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition. They will fiddle the clouds away and douse the day with sunshine and good old-fashioned bluegrass music. Their combination of electrifying picking, soulful singing, eclectic arrangements and original songs are sure to get your hands to clappin’, knees to slappin’, and toes to tappin’.
